    post by email

    Have you used any application with feature allowing user to send post to blogs, forums, via email?

    I know Wordpress has this feature, but it seems to work with text only. I am looking for something that can allow text as well as file attachment.

    Thanks!

    I've set this up for a client before.. you need to research either
    • "pipelining" for your SMTP MTA, this is where any emails delivered to a set address are passed to your application rather than stuffed into an Inbox, this is how I did it.
    • Using either an IMAP or POP3 email client library to check for and download email periodically.


    Either way you'll need to deal with MIME formatting and base64 encoding.

    Good luck, I remember Outlook was a pain in the neck..
