    Default Mobile upload script request

    Hey everyone. got a question thats maybe not so simple. how can i make my website accept photos that post onto a page that users upload from there cellphone?

    example:
    send pics to save@mywebsitealbum.com <this is the address users would send pics to>

    view on www.mysite.com/myalbum.php <this is where the photos post to>

    i know this is gonna require some database work. is there a tutorial out there anywhere that i can look at on how to do this. im not really even sure how to search this. any help would be great. thank you so much.

    Just brainstorming here: you would probably have to set up a script to check the email address, then parse the emails to get the picture files. After parsing, save the files both to the server and to the database (just the url location would be fine). PHP could probably do this, but it would be very complex. Just off the top of my head, you may want to check php's IMAP functions to get an idea about the parsing of emails part.

    Hope this helps.

    Easy, except for receiving the email. testingsite's info is accurate. trouble now is just figuring out how to get the attachment. IMAP is a good start, though you might need something more powerful.

    Sending email with PHP is built in; receiving is much more complex.

    Might be better to look into a different language, one integrated with the default mail server.

    Just thinking out loud some more here, at work we have a program that takes emails sent to our IT Help Desk address and posts them in an SQL database, then it displays the request in our help desk program. I found out that the program is written in Java and comes with the webserver bundled in.

    Hope this helps.
