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).
