automated email notifications will go to a particular email.  I'd like to read the inbox, process the email, and then delete it.  these are small emails--less than 2k.  What is the easiest way to do this from pl/sql?

there is no built in functionality for reading email in Oracle.  Only sending email.

You can however implement your own pop3 client using utl_tcp  package.

this question from the AskTom (Tom Kyte) site has a start on such a procedure
