Hi,
within our Web framework, there are forms that will be mailed to certain mail distribution lists (Outlook Exchange).
These emails contain structured form data as follows:

fields 1: value1
field 2: value2
...

Is there a simple way to transform these emails to a database structure (incoming email will trigger a small process that converts this email data and stores it to the database).

Follow it to directly connect to your own DB
