POP Check and database update RRS feed

  • User-872328799 posted

    Can someone point me to a way to have my application check a POP mailbox account?

    I have an application that sends an email to a user with an ID code in the subject line. When the user replies the ID is still in the Subject line.

    What I would like to accomplish is:

    Have the application check a POP box for new messages

    If email is present, scan subject line of message and add the email as text to a database record such that the body of the email is added to a field and the ID code in the subject line is inserted in a separate field. (IE: IDCode, Body)

    After updating database, delete email.

    I realize that the ASP app cannot really accomplish this and that I might need a server component. Any help with this would be great!
