processing incoming mail

Hi,

How do I get the details like sender's name, e-mail address,
the body text, subject etc from the incoming mail on unix platform using a cgi script.

Thanks in advance

If it is coming from an EMAIL then you can't use a CGI script as the message is transmitted via SMTP not HTTP.

If you mean that the user submits a form then the only way in which you can get the email details is to have the user enter them as these fields are deliberatly hidden from javascript.
