Flickr allows you to email your pictures to your account using a special emailaddress. You can use the subject as the title and body as caption. But how does this work? Do you need something special on the server end?

Hi Sophistry,

I’ve been testing your class and it works great, thanks. I’m a bit puzzled though. There’s 3 emails in the dir, but only 1, the first, is shown. Also, the attachment is not visible in the array. I’m using your example code. Is there something I should be adding?

hi codex,

thanks for the feedback. please visit the wiki thread for the imap_pop class. i think that’s a better place to figure this out!

also, when you do go there, post code, etc… esp. whether you use IMAP or POP email account.

cheers.

Hey, I was just about to reply this thread that I have figured it out. Kinda.

The script is working, and attachments are being saved to a fingerprinted dir. I’m just wondering how you can set your own dir. Anyways, I’ll check out the wiki!
