Forum OpenACS Q&A: Incoming emails
We are setting up a mail server to receive emails and we got curious what would be the best approach to take, and how openacs community developers customize their mail systems.
From the first view, i thought it could be a good idea to set Maildir at the root directory of oacs system. Together with the source code: www/ content-repository-content-files/ packages/ and etc.
But the thing is that mail systems don't get customized that way on a per application basis
any wise ideas?
At 23 we receive photo uploads via email through qmail. Qmail acts a an SMTP server and pipes all mail to a Python script, which interprets the content of the mail. Then individual photos are added to the openacs system through XML-RPC. (We're switching from qmail to Postfix soon; the principle is the same though.)
