Hi,

Having owned the SB for 2 weeks now, I have already created some nice scripts for it.

Now I have got the idea that it is possible, in fact quite easy, to read emails on it. But before I make the scripts I would like to hear if such a thing already exists?

Regards,
Martin

Probably the easiest thing to do is create an RSS feed from your email, and you're done. You can already do this for Gmail, there's a previous thread about it if you search for it.

There are some email plugins listed here:

If you do roll your own, please consider releasing it and adding it to that list. :-)

Yes, that was my idea. I will take a look at Peter's link and see what I find.

I have found that the email addons are plugins for SlimServer. I would rather prefer simple scripts to put on any web server as I don't really like being dependent on having my computer turned on.

I will return with more info when I have made the script.
