-access my email
-fetch a particular mail from a group i belong to
-follow link in this email
-fetch 2nd piece of info from other site, then
-store these in certain format in database on client.

Sounds like you will need JavaMail to get at your email.

Thanks Paul.
Any ideas how I would learn to use this? I'm still a begininner, and so far only written simple programs using J2SE, swing classes etc.

Same way as everyone else . Assuming you understand the very basics of SMTP and POP3 (there are plenty resources out there if you don't) just go through the tutorials.
