Hi -

I am curious has anyone worked on a project where you emailed a photo
to your app - which then takes the attached image and attaches it to
your account?

For instance, I have a photo gallery that I want to send images from
my cellphone to.  I need to authenticate that the email came from the
one that's on record, if so, upload the photo to my account.

Any ideas/help appreciated.

Yes, have a look at MailFetcher
( and the mms2r
gem which will pull photos from cellphone MMS messages
