Hi, we got a project with extensive requirements to trigger events based on incoming emails on a rails platform. We need to reach each incoming email, parse it and trigger logic based on it. Has anyone ever worked on such a system? 1) Do you know any books / resources / etc which explicitly elaborate this topic? 2) Any pointers to what within rails should we work with? Any suggestions Action Mailer seems to be not designed for something v extensive. Please advise

Hey. This isn't a terrible thing to undertake but there's not so much information available. I wrote a couple of blog posts about the subject of receiving email(http://steve.dynedge.co.uk/2010/09/07/incoming-ema...) and testing (http://steve.dynedge.co.uk/2010/11/29/receiving-te...) this. If you get things right you can split them over a couple of different Mailers if you need to. If you need any more info just shout.
