Hi, i have answer for the same problem...
see my topic..
I am really no expert, but you can make an action that sends mail. For receiving mails you can use the jboss mail server - there you can parse the mails and react to the content. This is how I launch my instances...
anybody doing this (parsing email to get response)
Appreciate if some one can post code snippet for doing this
Really helpfule fo rthe whole open source community here
Look at the wiki of the mail server - you have to write your own MailListener. Therein you can do what you want with the message.
