[REBOL] Re: IP Address

From: antonr:iinet:au at: 9-Jan-2004 18:03

I don't think you can. That's the problem with email - you don't know who it's coming from. That's why we get so much spam. However, it looks like you want to send your address from work, so your home computer can contact your work computer. Surely you can just embed the ip address in the mail you are sending. But I think there will be a problem: your work ip will be an internal address on a subnet, or a dynamic ip, and behind a firewall, so it will not be visible from the outside. I have an idea, both machines check for mail and send to the same mail account. But each puts an identifier in the message so that you can tell who it's from. When each machine checks the mail, it doesn't delete it straight away necessarily. It first reads the mail, and only deletes those mails which were intended to be read by this machine. To do this, you need to open a pop port to your account manually, like this: port: open join pop:// [user ":" pass "@" system/schemes/pop/host "/"] Now read and examine the mail you have before deciding which to delete. (Can help with that). Anton.
