    Default Searching through an email

    Hi,<BR><BR>Does any one know of a way you could receive an email and then read it in so that you can use some of the text - What I&#039m aiming to do is receive an email about share prices and read it in and then pick out the shares and the corresponding prices.<BR><BR>Is this possibly with ASP? Thanks for any help in advance, Dan.<BR><BR>

    Actually it&#039s stored in CSV&#039s, so it seems free for the taking for programmers. I use it for our local intranet to get our 401k quotes :)
