At first blush, this looks like a real useful module for mail handling 
in Drupal. Nice work ... I wonder if it shouldn't go directly into 
mailhandler.module? Do you see other uses beyond prettying up inbound 
email? If you get the UTF8 stuff worked out, please close this issue: 
http://drupal.org/node/4758. Again, I think that fix should wind back 
into mailhandler.

- you want to switch on $may_cache in emailfilter_menu(). your call to 
_head() is happenning twice right now. See docs for hook_menu().
