Answer

Because our email server runs on a separate machine, directly piping the incoming email to your script is not possible.

However you can use tools such as getmail to poll your POP account regularly and then pipe the retrieved emails to your script. Setting up getmail is particularly easy. Please consult with getmail's document for more information.
