[REBOL] Re: Emailing to a server ?

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 3-Oct-2002 11:06

Hi Jason, << Does anyone have experience/advice/ideas using REBOL [or another scripting language] for automatic email services to work with a server-side bot? I want [authorized] users to be able to directly email to a server-sde email address. A bot-script will then parse the email and add content to Vanilla site [or similar]. Authorization may include appropriate syntax within the email which the Vanilla site admin can est and edit. >> Hardly my area of expertise, and I'm not sure I know exactly what you're after, but I just did a little thing that does something similar. Basically, it's a list server. In this case, there is a config file that tells it what mail addresses to monitor for projects and it polls them periodically. When messages come in, it does some processing work and sends notification messages to project team members. Authorization can be handled a number of ways I imagine. --Gregg
