Are there any ways to extract email data with asp, then store them in a database?

How do you mean, 'extract email data'?

It is possible to access emails sent to a certain mailbox, however the only way I know how to do this requires SQLServer to connect to a specially-configured mailbox on an Exchange server(or, more succinctly, "requires lots of money and the patience of a saint"). I've used this in the past to enable emails sent to a certain address to be dropped into a database-driven online forum.

I don't know of any other useful methods, sorry.

I want to extract data sent to a certain email address. And preferably a free and easy method :p

Guess I would have to think of an alternative.... sigh

Thanks anyway Spudhead!
