I need to process emails received on a terminal in either of two ways: 1. Programmatically reading an incoming email using java before it is stored on the local storage of the default mail client. 2. Programmatically reading emails from the local storage of the default mail client.
Is that possible? If so how??
You may ask: why does this guy (me) need to read emails from a program when email are ultimately meant to be read by human being and not only computers? Answer: because I am currently designing an application with stringent technical requirements that are as follows: we, the programmers need to submit information to our project manager using exclusively emails (we can't afford to send sms or open a firewall port) and the app running on my boss device will need to process the info and act accordingly.
