My previous post was not clear, hence resending this.


I am trying to create new tickets in the ticketing system using python. When I receive new email from a particular address, I have to trigger the python script and parse the mail  in required format. 

The  main hurdle here is,  how to invoke the script on arrival of new mail? I checked the outlook settings and found that it supports only microsoft VB script and Jscript. Is there any other way? I mean, if I make a daemon, how will it be notified of new mail? Is there any python module that does this? 

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this, since it is also a microsoft related question. But any help is appreciated.
