We are looking for a solution where a script monitors all incoming emails which contains URL and write the URL in a text file along with the sender & subject name.
Is it possible through powershell?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

if you'll do it using outlook you will need to move the message/delete it or think of a way of not going over the same item you already did:
$olFolderInbox = 6
$outlook = new-object -com outlook.application;
$mapi = $outlook.GetNameSpace("MAPI");
$inbox = $mapi.GetDefaultFolder($olFolderInbox)
$inbox.items | %{

Open in new window

Another way is to use EWS managed API there you can sync folder items that will give you a serial after every run then on the next run you send this serial and get only new items since last run.
