I'm really new to Lotus Notes and Domino stuff....

I would like to develop little app, which checks my email box and runs something if there is an email on the server.....  I saw Lotus has ODBC driver out there.... since I want to READ only, would it work for my email box? Or is there better API out there for reading email? I don't need to see attachments, I want SUBJECT and BODY only .....   Or is there any nice free little "lotus notes email checker" which allows to run app when new email arrives ?

Create a local replica of your mail file
Create -> Agent
Run after new mail is delivered
Run @function formula
Formula is:
    path := "C:\\Program Files\\Some\\Thing.exe")
    @Command([Execute]; path );
File -> Preferences -> User preferences
    Make sure local agents are enabled; if not, enable it and restart Notes
