I get an email from a few affiliate programs I'm a part of once a week.

I'd like to have a few PHP scripts produced that will:

a) login to an email account that I have these emails sent to (or if there's a better way to get the email content to these scripts, I'm open to that)
b) parse the emails depending on the sender and expected format
c) follow the links in the emails
d) grab an image from the resulting linked page from those emails
e) create a wordpress entry in my blog using that image and then submit the post as a draft, so that I can manually approve the post.

There are five - ten different providers that send me these emails, so each may require a different approach/script.

If you'd like to make a proposal to do a script for one provider, you can, and we can then iterate off the other 8-9 for an additional fee per vendor (some will be harder than others, and some will be easier, I'm sure, but a lot of the effort sunk into this first one will likely be reusable)
