  • Let's say I have a mail address , .
  • I will get mails from different mail Id's.
  • All mails have an excel sheet attached.
  • Excel sheet has two fields, 1) another email Id 2) A name

Now my questions are,

1) can I store this mails into a list or directory from my mail box. Can I store the attachment to a different field in the list/ or to a different directory.

3) Can I forward or send another mail to the mail Id in the excelsheet.

Since these questions are related I put it together. Please give some guidence..
