<< Is there a flag in each email that lets you see if it's been "read"? I
want to the code to frequenty log in, check for "new emails" that have
arrived since I've last checked, and if so, send out an email to my

If your code is doing the checking, then it just needs to know the last time
it checked to see if anything new has arrived (based on the most recent
timestamp of the incoming messages). Not being a mail expert, I can't tell
you how reliable this mechanism will be, but it might work well. You could
also maintain a limited FIFO list of message IDs and filter out messages
based on that. I.e. if a new message has an ID that's in the list, you've
seen it already.
