Subject: Receiving SMTP mail using CL/RPG

I would like to develop an application that would would a little like a
listserv server and allow users to send a message to a group by using
the AS/400.  Example: The AS/400 has all the information about which
students are taking a class and what their email address is.  I would
like to be able to send a message to the AS/400 with a special keyword
in the body of the message (like FORWARD TO CLASS CSC110 01) and the
AS/400 would receive that message, lookup all the students in CSC110 01
and resend the message to those students.  I would do the same for
groups of employees that are already defined in my HR database.

I have the basics setup.  A special AS/400 user to send the mail to. A
CL program that does a QRYDST to an output file, then does a RCVDST from
the items in the QRYDST output file to another output file and then an
RPG to read that file, break up the received message into it's parts,
scan the body for the keywords and use SNDDST (I going to convert this
to the EMail API) to resend the message.  All this is done and working
as long as it is just plain text.

Where this all stops working is if the incoming email has an attachment
(i.e. a word document) that someone wants to send to the group.  Does
anyone have any idea how I might be able to get by this roadblock ?
RCVDST does not appear to like attachments.  Is there a receive email
API like the send email API ?  I have not been able to find it if there

Thanks for any help
