Booth:

We do this for a customer.  Their customers send a valid PO file to them 
attached to email.

We periodically check for files in their inbox (QTCPTMM/MAIL/Userid/inbox I 
think) and then use CPYFRMSTMF, along with an RPG
program to process them.

We ignore everything in the email until we see the file start.  For each 
customer, the file's 1st four positions are their ID, so,
we look for any record containing "NORD" for instance.

The code is ALL CLP and RPG, no API's, but I'd be happy to post the working 
example if you'd like.
