Uploading Picture from email attachment
« on: April 14, 2010, 03:37:22 pm »
Is it possible in the future to have a feature so that pictures can be uploaded by sending an email with a picture attachment, even from a mobile device. Everyone could have a default directory for pictures sent by email and everyone would have a unique email address to which they would send the picture to, to identify it came from X member. I've seen it in a few other forums, I think its really awesome.

Would be very hard to do.
You would have to an email account setup just for this purpose.
Then write a script to fetch emails from that account then parse the emails and extract the attachments. It would also need to know which category to place the image in. Either my some encoding in the subjectline,body of the message. Also would need to include handling of invalid images/missing attachments etc.
