.. should be achieved using mailets and matchers, the best thing to do is to
get your head round their configuration, and the mailet API.

There shouldn't really be any need for you to greatly understand how james
contains mailets if you understand how to use the container, it should hide
low level mail handling, and mailet instatiation from your specific process

Check out matcher and mailet code in org.apache.james.transport.mailets, and
mess with ~/james/apps/james/conf/config.xml to see the effect of changing
mailet/matcher & processors to build new flows and behaviour.
