I won't go into procmail propaganda except to say that it isn't as hard as it looks -- or as most people make it out to be. I can't think of an MTA that doesn't have a forwarding method (.forward or .qmail, with exim and postfix perhaps having something else but they all work the same way). Set up mail forwarding so that a copy goes to your PHP script, or a wrapper script that does something with the message and then calls your real script. No need for cron jobs and polling. [If you want, you can also store a copy of the email by providing a second target in the forward file).
