You need to get a better shell account. :)

The shell account I have allows me to telnet into the machine and do prety
much anything I want within the confines of my user rights & quota.

Find out if your account is running procmail. For those who don't know
procmail is a *nix mail filtering program. It is used to process incomming
mail before it is delivered. You can run DeMIME from procmail, it will
convert the message before it is sent to majordomo.
