QMail Help

My company is running qmail on our Unix server. I would like to run a MySQL script whenever an email was sent to a specific email address. I don't want to have to check every email that comes in, so I was thinking that the script would run when the message arrives at the specific mailbox. Is there anyway to do this? If so, what is the best way to write the script (i.e., language, from the shell command line, a specific file)? Thanks.
