Hi All,

I have a interesting problem that I have no idea where to begin.

If we have a user that sends in an email that has the following information:
1. Time it was sent
2. Location by Link (Example:  http://goo.gl/maps/2N2tK or by http://maps.apple.com/?ll=51.010969,-114.041481)

Is it possible to receive an email and then automatically download the email into vba excel where we can get the:

Time the email was sent AND an Approximate address (from the link).

Thanks for your help!

Just a point to start from. Each windows server allows a native SMTP server. This SMTP server can be addressed (i.e forwared) and the server just throws emails into a local folder.
From this folder you can open the email file as a text file and filter the information out you need via vba code.
