Reading emails from Outlook

mauricerichard used Ask the Experts™
Hello Experts,

Right now we receive hundreds of emails daily in an inbox.  These emails contain specific information which is managed by one of our teams.  The problem is, the emails come in many different formats.  This means our team wastes a lot of time just trying to find the information.

So I need to build a web application which will:

1) Read all emails of the emails in this inbox
2) Modify the data into one standardized format
3) Forward the standardized versions to a different inbox

I can handle step 2 and 3 ... but have no idea where to begin with step 1.
Can someone help me out with how to ream emails from an outlook inbox?
A code snipped would be awesome.

Many Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the feedback.

Sorry for the delay, I've been out sick.  I'm looking into getting these to work for me.  It's non-trivial so this might take some time to resolve.  I'll give you a heads-up once I have it working.


Thanks for the excellent info!
