email parsing from IS

Hi friends,
I need to parse the emails that come to a particular email id and process the message body of that mail.
Any ideas and suggestions to implement it in the best way would be grateful.

Objective: Integration server should read emails that a particular email ID gets periodically and send it to a flow service for its message body parsing.

I am having a problem regarding configuring an email port in the integration server.

Below are the details I have:
1.mail server ip address/hostname
2.user name(my e-mail id) and password to access the mail server.

I have done the below mentioned steps according to the Integration Server Admin Guide. Following are the entries made in the admin console:

  1. Package name: pkgName[/font]
    2. Host name: (also tried with IP address)
    4.user name: user
    5.password: pwd
    6.time interval :30

    7.port(optional):25 services as user:Administrator.
    9.require authorization within message:no.
    10.access mode:allow by default.

while trying to enable the above port, I got the error as:

Failed to start EmailListener: pop3: [ISS.0070.9003] Enable failed: Could not log into account

I also checked test email ID with OUTLOOK. It could send and receive mails.

I tried pinging the mail server from the IS machine, it worked.

Your replies would be grateful…

Thanks in advance,
