I've never done it but have you seen this:
http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowToReceiveEmailsWithActionMailer
Is there something in the instructions that doesn't work?

My best suggestion is to get the Agile Web Development with Rails by
Dave Thomas, DHH et.al.

http://pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/rails/index.html

It has a complete example of receiving email, as well as sending.

"email" is an object of TMail class. Read every word on the wiki
(http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowToReceiveEmailsWithActionMailer)
and you should be fine!

Rails Cookbook has a great section on how to do this.
