a question regarding KMail filters

  When filtering through kmail I see there are 2 types of actions - one is run
program and the other is pipe through program.

I've tried to use the run program action - but the python script I run needs
the From: address  - is there any way I can get the From: address (like a %f
or something like that?).

I also tried making my script reading from stdin and using the pipe through
action - but my script seems to recieve nothing.

Does anybody know how to let my script get certain parameters (at least the
From:) out of a mail?

(I know I could use fetchmail and then procmail - but I dont want to run
sendmail on my system and would prefer everything to stay in KMail)
