    Hi All,

    I will recieve on a regular basis several emails from an outside source
    (lotus notes). The formatting of the message body is not very clear. I have
    written an application (delphi) that displays the relevant information. The
    application works by reading in the text file and displays the information in
    a form.

    Is there a way to set up a rule so a message with a certain subject will
    automatically be saved into "C:mail" folder and then start-up "c:myapp.exe"?

    Or

    Have a form that automatically 'pops up' when you click on the email that
    will show the relevant information from the body of the text.

    Example of Body (revelant bits)

    Date: 15/07/05

    Amount: 3000

    Claim : 34.60 Customer: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx


    etc,etc

    Many thanks in pointing me in the right direction :)
