    Hey all,

    I'm designing an app that allows users to email me crash reports if my app ever crashes. I'd like to leave Mail running on a computer and when an email comes through, a script runs that pulls the entire crash report and parses out relevant information.

    I've got the entire parsing done, except I am manually copying the contents of the email into a file and then parsing that file.

    What's the best way to set this up so I can the contents of the email be pushed into my parsing script?

    Many thanks!

    You need to create a new rule in Mail that has its action set to run your script. Look at this post for a basic template to get you started.
