Need Advice: Robot Parsing Templates

One of my current private projects is to develope an email parsing robot (called via sendmail's .forward) which should process templates sent to it.
Until now I created my own regexp set to parse each type of template style to match the layout - but i don't really like that.

The problem is that I would like osupport _other_ template formats of commercial products with related functions and values in addition to my "own" format.

Isn't there some kind of template abstraction available?
Maybe a ABNF (Backus-Naur) Parser?

I recently tried Template::Extract but it's too "strict" and unflexible for my needs as far as i can see it.

Two years ago in the noon i was sitting at my deskt chatting with some guys on ircnet's #apache channel.

In 2001 I was working for the german headquarter of a US american online retailer as a webdeveloper - and I was bored (not only that day) until Rias and steven told us what happend (they had a tv at work).

I told the events to my colleagues. At first it sounded like a joke or something. But when the second plane crashed and the pentagon was hit there was no doubt that it was not an accident.

The company immediately reacted to prevent terrorism with 2 security guards standing next to the entry door until beginning 2002 and with the cancellation of the house-warming-party.
