basically you want to read your inbox via powershell.
to do that you need the following:
1. download and install Exchange Web Services Managed API 1.2.1
2. locate Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.dll on your file system.
should be located under C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange\Web Services\1.0
3. use the following code to get the last email received:

[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFile("C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange\Web Services\1.0\Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.dll")
$s = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeVersion]::Exchange2007_SP1)
$s.Credentials = New-Object Net.NetworkCredential('user', 'pass', 'domain')
$s.AutodiscoverUrl("email@address.com")

$inbox = [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.Folder]::Bind($s,[Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.WellKnownFolderName]::Inbox)
$inbox.FindItems(1)

Open in new window
