SPUG: standard way for a web app to handle incoming email?

For my perl/catalyst web app, Bikewise.org, we want to automate the process
of receiving updates from users via email. IOW, user sends email to
update at bikewise.org and we parse the contents and update the database

As I sat down to think this through, I realized I have no idea how this is
done. The app is hosted on a virtual server, and relies on a separate mail
server that's run by my hosting provider. Do I need access to the raw mail
files on the server? Is there a standard way to set this up?
