    Unanswered: E-Mail Automatically to MySQL ?

    How can I do this ? I don't want to have to do anything except be able to create a PHP script that views the data that goes to the MySQL database ?

    The e-mail address will not contain anything private, simply making available a way to view notices that are sent to that e-mail address with a timestamp of when they were sent.

    Thanks.

    I'd guess that you would need to run a script every X minutes to 1) check for relevant emails on the mail server, and 2) insert the email message content into the MySQL database.

    (if were talking Linux, cron would be the scheduling program... then you'd perhaps need a command-line interface to the mail server)

    more info

    I do have CRON installed on my machine, which is a FreeBSD Unix box.

    I use Sendmail 8.12.11 as my mail client.

    I have a feeling this isn't easy, but if anyone can help me, that would be great.
