Here's what I need: have my printer automatically print all emails coming to a specific address. This way, a forward to this address will have it printed. Including attached documents of course.

What is the best way to do it?

Opening a mail account/some polling application solution comes to mind. Ideas will be much appreciated.

In Microsoft Outlook you can create a rule that will print every email when it is received.

Mozilla Thunderbird can do it with an add-on.

Many MTAs allow you to specify a program to be run when an email is received at a specific address. Simply have the program run decode all attachments and print everything out.

@iglvzx: The question is no better. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Nov 19 '11 at 21:10
I've submitted an edit to clarify what an MTA is. I linked to the Wikipedia article on message transfer agents. –  iglvzx Nov 19 '11 at 21:11
