I am trying to set up a SharePoint page as follows (using SPdesigner), but don't know if it is possible and where to start.

We want a page where a list is displayed, and the content of the list should be based on data from a database. But now the question: This database should be filled (updated etc) from XML emails that arrive at a defined SharePoint-inbox.

  1. an email with XML content is sent to a SharePoint email address
  2. SharePoint sees the email, reads the content
  3. XML content is being checked and the data is inserted to the page/list database.

is this possible and any tutorials/help on this topics (read email, XML to db/list) plz?

(i'm fairly new to SharePoint so my apologies if question sounds strange :) i know how to easily do it on f.e. php but that's not 'allowed' here where we want to implement it...)

@Jens looking at the amount of replies I don't think so – Bokw Dec 3 '12 at 9:57
