Automatic posting via email?
Hello,

I am new to Gossamer Forums and have a seemingly simple mod that I would like to implement, I just have to figure out the best way to do so!

Basically, I would like to have an email message parsed and posted to a specific forum automatically upon receipt. I have looked at at Post/Write.pm module, but it seems to be pretty specific to receving a POST method from a browser. I was thinking about stripping out the functionality and creating a new "atomic_post" method, but before I did this I wanted to see if it had already been done.

Any ideas? Does anyone know, off the top of their head, what exactly is involved in posting a message? It looks easy enough, just insert into the db and vioala the magic occurs. I just don't want to miss anything!

BTW, the reason for this is to have a majordomo mailing list automatically feed the forums.

Thanks!
