    Extracting email data

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

    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.
