As sometimes happens, I wasn't clear.  the e-mails each have 1 inquiry, or 1
data record.  As these w-mails arrive the data has to be stripped out of the
body of the e-mail.

Subject: Re: Has anyone parsed a received e-mail into a physical file?

Here's where I would start.

The email account has a folder in the root file system
that holds the email. The folder name is the same as
the user profile associated with the email account and
its in the /QTCPTMM directory. Browse the directory
and you'll see how it's set up.

I would open the directory, get a list of what's in
there, process each file, then delete or move the
file. I would use the unix api's for this.

hth,

Phil
