Agent to parse formmail replies

I am using the formmail perl script that emails a form submitted on my Web site. I would like this email when it arrives the specified mailbox on my domino server to be acted upon by an agent that will parse the information from the mail and enter into specified fields creating a new document.
Not a problem, just add an agent to the mail database and set the "When should this agent run?" feature to "After new mail arrives". You can then code the logic (in either LotusScript or Java) that will parse the values from the body of the mail into fields in a document the mail database or another database.
