I'm trying to create a C# app that's notified when I receive a new email and if the email is from a particular person to open and parse the email and process the parsed results.

I have NO idea where to start. Can someone please point me in the right direction where to start.

Thank you,

All you might need to do is start from email client , POP3 or anyother email client,
You must have email client program to interact with email servers.

1) I would say first identify which email client want you want to use based on email you receive.
2) Get that client implemented (there are sample of C# POP3 client)
just need to hook up SMTP -TCP protocols.
3) Define your business rules on those messages.

Hope this helps.
