Writing an email responder
What I want to do is create an email autoresponder which logs in to a pop3 mail account (using SSL) and grabs all the messages (headers and bodies) and deletes them from the server, storing them in an array of strings, ignoring anything that isn't plain text.
From there, the program will check the array for certain keywords in certain positions, and will build a response email.
The program then needs to connect to an smtp server (usingSTARTTLS/SSL) and despatch the response email to a predefined address.
Now, the string and array handling and response I think I can just about figure out for myself - there's plenty resources out there that I can see.
In case you're wondering what it's for, I'm creating a forum-based roleplay game where play is managed by email from the app running on a little box I'm dedicating to the purpose, through the cablemodem and into the intertubes.
TIA of any help ;-)
