ColdFusion POP Gateway

Home » ColdFusion POP Gateway

Someone just e-mailed me to ask if I knew of a CFMX7 gateway that could watch a POP mailbox, firing CF events when messages are received. And actually, I do. Robi Sen wrote one for my Advanced ColdFusion MX 7 Application Development. And even if you don’t have the book, you can still download the example from the book page (you’ll want the source code for Chapter 31).

    Sure, but you’ll need to tweak the Java code (included) to use those settings.

    You will have to play with the example some. There is alot of debugging code that is probably not neccasry but included to give developers a idea of how to debug apps when they are working on them. You also might want to create a better exception hanlding and you will need to massage the code slightly to keep better track of meesages already read etc. It should not be hard.

    Our system admin works on such a gateway for quite a long time…too many things to be done still.

    Hi Ben,
    Is there a way I can get a sample config file and basic setup instructions for the pop3 gateway?
