an ML would be good
but for what do you need a db?

find incoming/ -newerct '2009-02-10' ! -newerct '2009-02-11'

will find the files created on that day
just replace the 2 dates by the current day and previous day, and make
sure that the scrip doesnt run close to midnight and make sure the times
dont contain hour/min/sec so they arent dependant on the exact running time

really, just a 2 line script and it would be great if you put that on mphq
a db would be overkill though IMHO

There will always be a question for which you do not know the correct awnser.
