eMail2mySql is a straightforward php script that allows the user to check email from a POP3 account, and insert that email into mySql. eMail2mySql incorporates error checking, and will format your email just as it would be when viewed in your email client.
Along with the eMail2mySql script itself, the package also includes a simple but effective GUI, allowing you to view email, as well as search and delete your email too. I have added this so that you can see what the script can do for you.
eMail2mySql is normally triggered manually from your web browser, however to complete the package, I have included a 'trigger' script. This script can be included to any page so that eMail2mySql can be called automatically for you.
Here are some key features of "eMail2mySql":
Direct import into mysql. No more email saved to your local machine.
Sports error checking, and during import will alert you if any email is not inserted into sql.
When eMail2mySql.php is run, it will thread all the email(s) in a simple list, making it easy to see what is imported, and what is not. It will also alert you to connection failures.
Allows you check email, but leaving them on the mail server. This is useful for setting up the script, and ensuring it is connecting to sql and your email account. Once you have things set up, you can change the config file to turn this off. [Note: if you leave this function on, you will get duplicate messages when eMail2mySql is run again!]
Nice GUI to view, edit, delete and search on records. I include this for completeness as eMail2mysql does not provide these features directly.
Makes use of a simple configuration file to make all the necessary connections to mysql and your email acct.
Includes a 'Smart Trigger" to automatically call eMail2mySql when included to your php page.
Minor changes to the triggering mechanism that potentially could prevent the included page from loading if there were problems importing email.
Added a "Create New Record" function to manually create new records in read_list.php
No Bugs were discovered in Version 1.0.
New lower price. :>)
