Please How Do I Forward E-mails Into A Database?

Pls how do I forward an e-mail automatically into a database? I have a datbase I am creating and I want to forward e-mails to it.

I would have loved to create a form and have the details of the form sent to the datbase directly but cant. SO i need a way to forward the details I receive from these e-mails into a Database.

i want it to be automatically routed into the database, that is if somebody sends a message to the email it goes to the database automatically, instead of the email address.

I believe emails are usually stored in databases from where you retrieve them.

You can use forward to an outside email address to forward incoming emails to another email address.

If you are using PHP, the native mail function can send email on any PHP enabled server.

You can also create an insert transaction or operation on your database of choice.

Unless of course you don't know what to do contrary to your claim on your last post there is no issue here that cannot be sorted out easily.

You have a database with tables. When email is sent via smtp, is it already being stored in your database? Or is it the case that you want to route the message to your database? Can you please try to explain better? By the way, what technology are you using here?

Not that i don't know how to do it but i want to use the email route. When the mails are sent to my mail box, it sends it to the database which makes a comparism of an earlier sent message and give the sender a feedback in his email or a download link.

  but meanwhile, to receive a mail and forward it into the database, u need to write a program that can speak to the smtp server that the mail will be sent to , validate ur credentials and get the mails before u can store a copy of the mail in your database.

Let's back up a bit - what does the above mean? "Can't" because you don't know how to code it OR "Can't" because of web host limitations?

Do tell please.

You at least have to have a way of connecting to the database through some module that recieves the email and the writes the data to specified table(tables in the database). How do you recieve these emails? ie. where are the emails coming from?
