I think you can set up the alias as a pipe in the familiar syntax

root: "| /usr/stuff/to/do.pl"

Exim hates your family when you do this, but you can make it out
alive. Postfix and sendmail are more amenable. They just do what
they're told.

The formail program can help parse stuff out possibly, but maybe not.
