I just found an existing iPhone app doing exactly what I had planned to do: PushMail. Kudos to its author Simon Patarin. I'll have to think of something else for my first app.

Working on my first iPhone app project.

Will have a back-end receiving E-mails from exim, putting them in a database.

Installed php plugin for parsing MIME e-mails:
sudo pear install Mail_Mime-1.6.0
sudo pear install Mail_MimeDecode
Hm, according to this:
I really want this:
sudo pecl install mailparse
Ok, think it worked, added an entry in /etc/php5/conf.d for mailparse.

I have a work-in-progress version of mime mail parsing in /home/erl/bin/informMailPiper.php. Run with php -f , and send msg to stdinput.
