tools for handling form to e-mail data

DN
I'm receiving automated emails from a web page with a form to e-mail cgi.
Each e-mail has only one record so it is going to be time-consuming to
import manually into a database. Are there any other desktop tools
available for manipulating the data from these types of e-mail forms?

Thanks.

An email is just a text file. An email sent from a form is just a text file
in a specific format. This is exactly the sort of this Perl was designed
for.
