Hi all,

I want to do an application which will redirect incoming mail to one perticular mail ID to JAVA application .

My question:IS it possible for JAVA application to listen for incoming mail ? After listening it should retrieve information present in mail..we can do it in JAVA application,if we can, then please guide me which API i should use

I want to read mail's subject line,body part,to & from part and store those information in XL-sheet\HTML...

Here i know how to send mail(using JavaMail API) and how to store data in XL-sheet(using POI),but i dont know how to listen,or extract mails subject line ,body part , by java application...

if anybody knows please assist me.

Giving up is the easiest thing in the world to do..but holding it together when everything seems like falling apart is true strength!!
