You could use GFI MailEssentials to accomplish this..

It has tons of other features too wich are, in my opinion, VERY usefull to have on a mail server..


http://www.gfi.com/mes/mesfeatures.htm

"Mail archiving to a SQL database
GFI MailEssentials can archive all inbound and outbound mail to a Microsoft SQL Server database. You can search for a particular mail or an entire email thread via the included web interface. Mail archiving is essential for back-up and search reasons."

"Mail monitoring
The mail monitoring feature enables you to keep a central store of the email communications of a particular person or department. Because you can configure the mail to be copied to an email address, all email can be stored in an Exchange or Outlook store, so that you can easily search for email or content."

thanks Yan_west, that's really good one I will keep it in mind, but for now I looking for something smaller, maybe there is a windows script that can handle such a task or maybe some kind of web service...?

Hmm, you could also get the mail in an outlook box, and compose a rule that fowards traffic in a folder, or to a different address??? are you using exchange?

You didn't really go into a lot of detail as to what you are doing, but there's plenty of ASP scripts out there that you could customize to insert a received message into a database.  The below links are assuming you will be retreiving mail via POP3:

http://www.example-code.com/asp/readEmail.asp
http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/092201-1.shtml

You then could take the results obtained above and use standard ASP DB calls to insert, update, delete records

Is this what you had in mind?

Yes - you mentioned that in your original question.  What I'm getting at is:

1.  When you mention inbox folder - do you mean mail that is already downloaded to an email client?
1a.  Which email client?

2.  If you haven't downloaded the mail yet, do you want your script to download and process it?
2a.  What protocols does your server support for doing such (i.e. POP3)?

3.  What specifically are you looking to do with the message and what pieces do you need taken from the original email?

I'm more than willing to help you, but need more details to be able to answer the question.  Being vaugue tells all of us nothing :)

1a.   anyone who sends email to my server's any mail box

2a. yes, it supports POP3

3. let's say you emailed me pictures, now since pictures are emailed as attachment, what I want my server to do automaticaly is that, it has to separate pictures from html and store them as HTML page. without bothering me, imagine I was not home for 2 days and nobody touched the server, when I go back home I want to see those HTML pages with pictures that were created by some automated process...  :)
sorry I really can't be any more specific
