Subject Re: CouchDB SMTP server integration
Date Mon, 16 May 2011 11:56:17 GMT
I have done this.

A very easy and secure way of doing this is to use some kind of
"stock" smtp server ie. Postfix and set the mailbox_command to a
custom script then inserts the mail into couchdb.

I used python since python has a good email parsing library, and
couchdb library, couchdbkit.
