Hi everyone,

I am planning on setting up a site that will do the following:

1) Users will be able to email pictures / video files to a specific mail
address on my server.
2) Something on my server will then check that mailbox (every 5 min or
whatever) for messages.
3) If there is a message in the mailbox, it will take the header information
and put it into a database, and then it will save the attachment as a unique
filename on the server (date&time of arrival or whatever), and then also put
that filename into the database.

>From there I will be able to handle all the ASP that needs to be done to get
things to display on the site.

As to why I am doing this by email, its because its on a mobile phone and as
of now you cant upload via the browser (at least here in Japan).

So is AspPop3 the way to go?  Will that be able to handle everything I want
it to, or will it just check the mailbox and return the header / attachment
information to me, and then from there I'll need some other components to
handle everything from there?
