( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
In theory you have to do the following:
  1. Configure the server so when it receives an e-mail from specified addresses it should execute the Perl script passing the content of the e-mail as a param;
  2. Make the Perl script read this param, discard 'useless' information from it (like the mail headers) and append the rest to a file. If you're talking about an Excel spreadsheet, you'll probably consider using Win32::OLE for the append step.

I'll have to do something similar probably a month from now, so if you still need assistance then we can work together, let me know.

If you are still looking for something that was already made, keep googling. I'm sure that there's a lot of stuff out there.

Regards,

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
