Why use email? Why not mySQL or a simple SMB share? Something like that?

Everything needs to be kept contained within their business. They have told me that this will generally be the case for many corporate clients of their size and larger.

This will keep things quite so the individual working on that system is not bothered by applications loading and interrupting their work flow.

I will put the code on in a text file on my server and make it available that way.  This link will get you some fully tested, working code.  If you have any questions, please let me know.
