need to read and parse my sendmail inbox and write the parsed data to a file then rename the inbox. I am open to other ideas on how to do this.

1 - cron will run perl script and parse email inbox
2 - write parsed data to a flat file(s).
Confirmation number, Flight number (number portion only)
First Name,Last Name,Flight Date, Flight Time.
file name = lastname_firstname_conf_flightdate_flighttime
3 - mv inbox to inbox_date_ran

Data will be similar to this.
