I want to have an email processor to run on my Ubuntu server. It should catch emails to certain email addresses and count them in a MySQL database, grep them for certain links, visit those links and then forward them to a Gmail account.

What I want the program to be able to do is the following: Catch email addressed to specific email addresses The email addresses are on a domain owned by me Count how many emails are received for each address Grep certain links out of the emails Visit the grepped links randomly, making sure to leave browser information. So not just GET them. Forwarding each email addressed to an email address to a different Gmail address Instructions for this program should be added through a web interface. I want to be able to easily specify which email addresses to monitor, what links to grep and to what Gmail address they should be forwarded. The objective of this program is to receive GPT emails and automatically process them by counting them, visiting the links and forwarding them. Example emails will be supplied on request. More info can be requested. At the moment there is no email server installed on my Ubuntu server so it is also your job to pick a free email server with all the basic ability's (mainly receiving, forwarding and sending mail) if you think that is necessary. Of course if you can make it receive and send emails without it that's also fine.
Ubuntu 10.04 server with an up to date LAMP stack.
