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).

  1. John,
    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.

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