Post Email to News on Church website?

Does anyone know of a service that would allow my Pastor to send an email that is automatically posted on the news section of the church website? I know blogging sites allow bloggers to send emails that are automatically posted, but I want to implement it into the actual church webpage. Anyone have any ideas or heard of something that would allow this?

You obviously need to connect to a mail server and dl new messages periodically for this to work.

There are two methods to do what you want and both of them will require some server side programming.
The first method is to emulate the POP3 protocol (it's quite simple) by manually opening a socket to the mail server.
The second method is to use an existing library that deals with the mail server and use it's interface to obtain the email. This is somewhat easier but there is slightly more overhead to it.

Thanks so much for the answer. Are you aware of any hosting services and/or purchasable software packages that do this? Is there a name for it that I could google?

I enjoy tinkering around in areas above my head, so I will look into what you said. However, if there is a software solution that currently exists, I may purchase it. I hate the idea of having to update the news page manually every time someone has something to add. Maybe I'm just lazy...
