Can server robots be triggered by an email? Or is the only way to have a script run from Outlook?

End goal is to have processes triggered by an email received that meets a specific naming structure.

Thanks!

I think it can be done in Outlook (2010 atleast)

In theory you can call the Orchestrator API.

Simpler to implement, though not the most efficient, would be to schedule the robot to check the new emails every now and then. If new items are found that match the condition than do something. Otherwise just mark the emails as read. Email is used like an Orchestrator queue.
