question about notifications

Hello,

 I am using postfix in conjunction with squirrelmail to build a business
application. One of the requirements that I have is that when an email is
received in one of the postfix mail boxes an alert is generated. In our case
we will be sending a standard message to another email but in general we
might want to run arbitrary code when messages are received by postfix.

 It seems that some of the work that has been done with virus scanners uses
a server hook to examine all the messages that pass through the server. Can
anyone tell me what that is called or provide a pointer to more detail and
is this the best way to solve a problem like this?
