It sounds like you might be talking about watching an Exchange inbox folder for new mail.  Is that what you are looking for?

yes, something like that, but my hosting company uses QMail Server not Exchange, but It will be really good if you sow me example for Exchange :)

thanks

Too many questions to answer, and too little time.  Sorry for not getting back to you.  I don't have any handy, and I couldn't quickly find an answer.  I thought that I could, but I was wrong.

Thanks for the gentle nudge.

Here is one place to look:

Microsoft Office XP Technical Articles  
Developing .NET Smart Clients for Microsoft Office XP
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnoxpta/html/odc_dnscof.asp

Look at the bookmark "Creating and Working with Office Objects".

I don't have specific knowledge from having accomplished this particular requirement, but my first guess is maybe, but it would require some work.  First of all, you could use Outlook automation to open an Inbox, and subscribe to a New Item event.

hey, hey, hey.... sounds like a good start. I setup outlook when mail contains an attachment, outlook moves that attacment to the folder which I created, but only problem is that, the folder which stores these attachments is nowhere to be found (it's visible only in outlook). is there any way to see programaticaly these attachments? I mean using some serverside language and display them on the website...?

It would probably be easier to determine the possibilities if you attempt this on any easy platform, such as a small Windows Form application, and then move to the web service stuff later.  It will remove a lot of possibilities for failure, in order to determine the best course of action.

I was talking about the ItemAdd event for an Inbox or folder:

Microsoft Outlook Programming: Jumpstart for Administrators, Developers, and Power Users
11.5 Folders and Items events

TheLearnedOne,

I figured it out, you have to use "FileSystemWatcher" class and little bit of .NET Network programming techniques, i.e. reading a mail from the server
