Reading the contents of an outlook email


We have a need to be able to read the contents of an outlook email.

For example we would like to be able to send an approver a request to approve or reject a requisition via email from SAP. Once the approver has made a decision we would like him to be able to reply to this email with his decision by entering 'Approved' or 'Rejected' in the subject line or in some other part of the email and then reply to the email with the decision. Now we would like to be able to receive that email at the SAP end, read it's contents and then decide on the processing based on the decision contained in the email.

I know how to send out an email. I need help with being able to receive and read the email at the SAP end before I can decide on the further processing.

I am aware of the SAP ADOBE interactive form but our company has decided against using it because of the cost involved. we are looking for solutions with what we already have, namely SAP ECC 6.0.

Please help me if you have a solution or point me to a resource that could help me.
