You should be able to give Outlook a rule to call a program (your Python 
one) when the subject matches whatever.

 From Python, use the mail module to parse and the windows extensions to 
access Excel and perhaps Access.  There should also be a DBapi extension 
for accessing Access through sql.  Search c.l.p archives, the web, or 
wait for others to post.
