Email processing

Hello everybody!

I would like to know if anybody using any kind of email processing scripts (or programs/services) for handling mails from online publisher ?

Example. A publisher sell my software. When somebody buy a program the publisher send a notification email to my address with customer information. Finally I have to send a registration code to the customer. I would like to automate this process on my website.

Any suggestions ?

Yes, this can definitely be done. You could setup a merchant account & gateway with someone and then have your gateway "pass back" the order details along with a sessionID of some kind after a successful transaction.

Then your script on your site could auto-generate or release the registration code to the customer. You'll of course want to employ some standard security methods to ensure that people don't try to spoof a "real" order in an attempt to get free software but beyond that... it is not too hard to setup the above.

you should look into, they have a service that pretty much allows you to do what you've asked without any custom code, providing your willing to actually provide a number of valid registration codes to them to distribute with the purchase.

You can even automate it even further And have it send them the registration code without you ever having to send the e-mail out. I just have to ask if your code is particular to the download or software or if you used just an algorithm? Or maybe you verify the registration code via your website when it is entered?

email processing

Thank you all for answers.

I will use several different publishers. So, I don't want to be connected with one of them. They all use the same method: sending a notification email.

I want to have ONE script (or something =) ) for parsing different emails from publishers. I know each publisher's email structure (first name, last name, email, ..). Parsed information will put to the database and registration code (generated using customer's device ID code) will be sent.

Any ideas?

PS: I don't want write, for example PHP script, by myself. I'm searching for already existing solution =)

Are these e-mails in the same format or do that use a different structure? If they are all in a different structure, you might need a few different systems. Set up an e-mail for each publisher. But if they could send something to your database to activate an e-mail - that seems like it would be faster.
