Program to upload e-mails.

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I'd like to know if anybody knows of a program already created that
allows the user to select e-mails in their browser or Outlook client
to upload to a web based database, i.e., mySQL?

I'd like to be able to click on my e-mails in Yahoo!, Gmail, or
Outlook 2003, and upload to a server that would allow me to search
with my browser.

If anybody has advice on a program that has already been created, or
if they have a suggestion on a programming language to accomplish
this, it would be great.

Best of luck with your project.

You might find it easier to set up forwarding orders for all your mail
addresses to a single one that already has massive searching functions.

Not readily possible.  Your web server has no access to what your
browser has loaded from another site, for instance.

The only way you could do some such would be to use cURL or similar on
your webserver to sign onto your email server, then fetch and parse the
information from gmail (or whatever) and display them in your window.
The PHP could would then have to take your input, fetch the requested
messages and post them.

It could be done.  But it's a heck of a lot of bother.  Just forward
them, as Peter suggested.
