hello all! i was wondering whether is it possible to write a script using asp to read incoming email headers.

i would like to read the subject line and store the ones that match the pre-defined subject line, more like a functionality of an email filter

for ex, say i've an email abc@hotmail.com, and i've a predefined subject line "hey you". i would like to capture all emails that are sent to abc@hotmail.com with a subject line "hey you"

so i was wondering if i can make asp to check the email account, ofcourse by giving valid creditials, for that matching subject line.

ofcourse, the request will be intiated by the user everytime he/she wants to check if they have recieved any emails matching that subject line.

any tips or ideas r welcomed. TIA

If you are using asp 3.0 then you would need to use a com component to do this. JMail is one such component that allows you to do this. In this case just use the .subject property of the Messages collection.
