  • E-mail as MDB Source

    I have a machine that generates a list of accounts on a daily basis that need to be processed. The easiest way for me to get the data off of the box is via email - no software to install, no process to manage, just cron it and save it to the body of an email.

    I see that the Spring Web Services can use SMTP and POP3/IMAP to transport messages but could not find equivalent functionality in Spring itself.

    Is it possible to have an e-mail address be the source of messages for a message driven bean? If not, what is the easiest way to use POP3/IMAP as a work queue (multiple machines would monitor the mailbox on a first come first serve basis)?
