    Automatically remove a header?

    Anyone know of a way to automatically remove a header, either with Mercury or within Pegasus Mail?  I'm using MercD to retrieve mail from hosted mailboxes and that host is running SpamAssassin which is adding an X-Ham-Report header which contains text content from the message.  It's making header searches very frustrating.  Here's an example:

    X-Ham-Report: Spam detection software,
     running on the system "host215.hostmonster.com",
     has NOT identified this incoming email as spam.  The original message has
     been attached to this so you can view it or label similar future email.  If
     you have any questions,
     see root\@localhost for details.  Content preview:  Search Products | Trade

    If the content that is being found is part of the message, isn't this OK? Wouldn't the search results identify the same message anyway? Or, perhaps I misunderstand what you want to do.

    It DOES hit, and that's the problem.  Numerous false positive hits in headers searches due to detections in the content of the X-Ham-Report header.
