receiving email

Hi Ppl,

I've worked out how a perl script can send a email.

But how can a script receive emails.

You'll need to clarify exactly what you mean.

I think you mean read rather than receive.  If so, then it depends on how your mail is accessable, ie:  POP3, IMAP, mbox etc.

well, after i logged off last night i thought of a much better solution. my scripts send a email here, and the original idea was to change a line or whatever in the email and reply, then the script receives the mail and process the order.

but the better way and more natural way to do it is to provide links in the email to run a script which process the order or whatever.

so thanks for answering anyway.
