    Question 1) Is this possible?
    Question 2) If so, where can I go to get information on configuring such a system??

    Thanks.

    The only way I can think of to do it is with the IMAP functions. You can read the mail messages with those functions, and put them in the database. A cron job to run every so many minutes to check the mail would work good, also.

    Maybe search on here or PHPbuilder for some IMAP tutorials?

    Just what I was afraid of...

    Didn't figure it would be something simple

    I'm waiting for more details from a client..

    perhaps, what they're doing is having the file(s) emailed to them, then manually inputing.. but it didn't sound like it..
