An incoming e-mail timer job only runs on front-end Web servers on which the service is active. The SPIncomingEmailService class stores the farm-wide settings for incoming e-mail.

To return the parent service of an incoming e-mail service instance, use the inherited Service property of the SPIncomingEmailServiceInstance class. You can also use the GetChild method of the SPPersistedObject class to return the incoming e-mail service, for example: SPFarm.Local.GetChild<SPIncomingEmailService>().
