Best way to automatically copy out attachments from an email

    As of now here is my situation:
    I am working on a system to aggregate IT data and logs. A number of
    important data are gathered by a third party system. The only
    immediate way I have to access the data is to have their system
    automatically email me updates in CSV format every hour. If I set up a
    mail client on the server, this shouldn't be a huge issue.

    However, is there a way to automatically open the emails, and copy the
    attachments to a directory based on the filename? Kind of a weird
    project, I know. Just looking for some ideas hence posting this on two
    lists.

    Thanks all, and happy hump day!
