Extract attachments from MSOutlook and POP3 server

There are 2 parts to this question:
1) I have a linux server and a Windows pc. How do I extract attachments from windows MS Outlook to import into the linux server's mySql? I thought of using OASniffer to extract, vb ftp over and write a script to import to mySql. Any other more efficient way to automate this?

2) How do I get attachments from POP3 server directly? Is there any functions in linux to do this? Or any language using shell script, Java or PHP to do this?

I have installed php4.3.4, mySQL and apache2.0.47 in my windows pc. When I access it through http://localhost:8080/index.php, i didn't get any output. It just show a blank page. I have already created a database with a user and password that is configured in config.inc. Please advise thanks.

I've fixed that with some modifications. I have another problem now. Seems like this program is for future emails that will come in to the pop3 server.

Question:
What about current email that already resides in MS Outlook? How can I import into mySql?

It's the same as #1 above. Anyone has any way that are simpler for current emails that are residing in MS Outlook?

Btw, I'll give another 250 points for this. Do I have to requery this in order to give points since it's the same question? Pls advise.
