I’m developing a different kind of Rails app. It’s an email client
*built on RoR *which users can download and use. It’ll look and feel
like a standard webapp, except that the server will be run locally
(maybe webbrick)… Basically, the idea is that:
* Web based apps are easier to upgrade, use etc. * But people need to have their email and other stuff on the hard drive, so that it is easier to refer to, etc
The problem I’m facing is that I can’t find any libraries/resources to
send/receive email from POP in Rails. The catch here is that the app is
meant to be /deployed/ on Windows, not just tested, and that I can’t
include any dependencies outside my app - so no sendmail equivalents
etc. (My plan is making it something like InstantRails, so users just
have to unzip and start using).
Any help is appreciated.
