Subject:RE: Email to MySQL
View as plain text  
Take a look at procmail.  I currently use it for spam filtering but it also
allows me to set "recipes" for processing that you can then send to a perl
script to do the insert.  Right now, I catch certain email TO's that I want
into a mysql database and it seems to work fine.  And once you have it in
the perl script, you can probably do whatever you want with it there...
