I have an account at hotmail and another at yahoo. I want an application which will log into the accounts, read the messages in the inbox and spam folders and store information into a mysql database recording the receipt of the messages.
The message subject contains a unique id. This id is used to update the corresponding record in the database. The update to the database will record the date that the message was received and whether it landed in the inbox or spam.
Acceptable technology solutions in order of preference: PHP, Java, .net, Delphi
Look here for help with hotmail: [url removed, login to view]
1. installation instructions are required
2. implement this using regular expressions so that the application can be modified if it stops working
3. after messages are stored in the db, they should be deleted from the inbox
4. after the process is finished, it should empty the trash.
