Receiving Emails

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Jan 31, 2015 6:54 pm

Hi all,

Is there a way to get C2 receive emails, i.e. listen for emails and receive them. Or, alternatively, poll an email account, and read in selected emails. I guess writing a custom plugin would be one way; but is a simple way to achieve this without writing a plugin.

thanks,

Dan

Can be i am wrong but i think there is no way from inside C2. I think you could write some script on the server that extracts the text of the email and saves it so you can read it inside Construct.

hmm. Thanks. Yes.

Perhaps a PHP script that can be called via an AJAX call ... this could be one approach ... PhP presumably has an "email" library, POP3 or IMAP.
