How to log email

Hi,
I have got a project where we need to log every email that is sent from anywhere into the database.

example:

John wants to log all of his conversation with Anne.
He do this by CC all of his email with Anne into server@example.com

Our server then capture all emails that are sent into server@example.com and store them into the database for the purpose of data mining.

what technology do I need to implement that?

ideally a linux server with php/java/open source software

you know that the Email is not a serializable object in Java..
i.e. you can not make the object to get stored as a "Email" per say..

now if you want to have it stored in the data base in different fields ( i.e. to, cc, date, time, & content etc..) that can be done using the javamail APIs..

this mail needs to go to a server and it has to have a valid email address ( server@example.com ) for example..

then you can use Javamail to connect to this server and read mails off of it to store in your database...

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

you should be able to use whatever email server is being used at your org.
you can even use the gmails and yahoos who provide a pop3/IMAP access for your test purposes..

Here is a very good link for javamail tutorial..
