[thelist] E-mails into database (again!)

Mon Aug 8 22:14:00 CDT 2005


I am also looking into a solution and considered writing one from the ground
up.  In my searching I came across this promising looking program:
http://www.email-2-db.com/index.htm   I would like to write it (its for my
own use) strictly for the learning of it, however this program looks like it
would help me right out of the box. 

Not sure where you are with this, whether you'd want to write it yourself or
plop down some money and install a program, etc..  In any case, I hope this
helps you in some way!

Subject: [thelist] E-mails into database (again!)

Since I last posted about this I have been looking into the suggestions put 
forward. To re-cap, there is an e-mail list (similar to this one) and I want

to place all the e-mails into a searchable database on a web site. Someone 
suggested http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/092201-1.shtml as it is to 
be hosted on an old NT server using CDONTS. I was quite keen to code it all 
myself but unfortunately the server space I have is shared and so I cannot 
install any programs and, because this is for a charity, they can't really 
justify the expense of a dedicated server. I have also looked at 
http://www.gdidb.com/ but it is not the most intuitive program in the world.
But it occurred to me yesterday that I have a server on my machine already, 
IIS on XP Pro. So my question is, is it possible to write a script that will

run on IIS to connect with either an e-mail account or search my hard drive 
for copies of the downloaded mails, and then put the results into a database

which I can manually upload once a week? I realise this is probably not the 
best way to do this, but to my mind it should work. If this is the case, can

anyone point me in the right direction as to how I might achieve this 
because I have no idea even where to start looking.

Thanks again
