I am looking at creating a website with a gallery, does anyone know of a pre-existing gallery where users can send an image within an email or mms to a set email address, so it will display directly into a gallery when received?

Thanks in advance,

G

Without having your own server,
all I can think of is having a PHP script
periodically go into a pop3 email account
and look for attachments. Not very elegant,
as it will have to run via a CRON job, and
somehow have to know what to do with
the attachments.

Stuff like this?

Otherwise, if you had your own dedicates server (Apache, PHP5) ... I think it
could be done with some software, and it would be done automatically when
an email was received.

This looks like a big project.
