Use Roundcube for file based mails
« on: May 02, 2018, 06:34:07 AM »
Hi there,
I would like to use the roundcube system to display on web an email that I have in a file, not in any pop3 or imap. So just a Linux based file with the mailmessage inside to be displayed when a user types https://something.com/?_task=mail&_uid=123456&_action=show. Obviously my hack should respond to the right _uid message id to display the right mail.
I found a possible location in the ./program/steps/mail/func.inc file, but maybe there is a better place? Anyone tried this? Or can you build/config a mail provider to replace pop3/imap?
Rgds, Huibert.

For now I will use https://secure.php.net/manual/en/book.mailparse.php. Pity Roundcube is not easily usable. - Rgds & Thanx.

Roundcube uses IMAP to fetch messages without isn't going to be simple. If you have an email in a file and you want to phrase it maybe you want to look at the Roundcube framework and build something custom to display the email.
