Mail Box Question

  Asked By: Jaxson    Date: Dec 26    Category: Java    Views: 922

I have a problem with ASP and JSP. I want to read the contents of a
mail box from an ASP or JSP program. My ASP or JSP program should
read the emails from a specific mail box and then process the
commands inside each email. I want to be able to manage my web
application via email.
I tried to find a source code or any method for implementing this,
but I didn't find anything in the search engines.
Do you have any idea about this?
Is it possible to read emails from asp or jsp?
If it is not possible to do this in asp or jsp, is there any other
way to read the contents of a mail box using CGI or Perl or PHP or
any other possible method?
If you know anything about this question, tips, tricks and etc.

For Java -> use JavaMail (java.sun.com/products/javamail). If using an app server you should already have it in it.

In ASP there is special ojbect which can work with email easily.

I have done those folder stuff and IMAP with PHP, as always PHP is a
magic: EASY and HANDY
