Sure, it's really easy.

If you take a look at the script library, there's a section on email;
It's really easy to read mails and you get the relevant fields in a
rebol object such as mail/from mail/subject etc. I actually put an
entire web blogger into my IRC bot and it also periodically checks
e-mail for blogs, SMSes bound for IRC and things like that.
