[aprssig] APRS<=>E-mail

Given that we all have different APRS devices, allow the RECIPIENT to 
specify the max length of any single message and whether to truncate or 
split longer messages.  White-space compression can also be done as well 
as HTML-stripping down to the plain text.

Alternatively, allow the RECIPIENT to specify whether HTML-formatted 
messages will be accepted directly, rendered to text, or rejected (plain 
text only).

Also, if it supports restricting from whom e-mail will be accepted, 
please also support a wild-card for those APRS-IS clients that might 
want to receive from anyone and are not bandwidth-limited nor impacting 
an RF hop.
