This might be a stretch but here it goes.

A lot of people have cell phones that can send email or test messages.

Set up an email address. Lets say for the sake of argument email@lakelavonfishing.com

The person (fisherman) sends a test message to that mailbox "Fish are biting NOW. Get out here!" That message is then posted to the site under a new topic.

What do you think?

hhhmmm don't know how you would be able to link that to a username to post under...plus then you have the whole spam mail thing to contend with...don't know if that will work...

Oh come on now. You give up too easy. Allow posts to the incoming email address only from pre-approved email addresses and have them all post under the same username (remoteuser) but "link" the incoming email address to a user name.

example:
sbursik@vtextcom=ScottB

Should be a simple perl script and some interface into the SQL database.

so where do we get all of these pre-approved email addresses?  Their cell phone email address may not be the one in their profile??

Some regsitration page that is only available once you are logged in. I will work on a stand alone perl script that should do the job and hand it over for your review.

I am not sure what his capabilities are, but Cool_Spruill might have some insight to this as well.

Adam and I looked into it but it looks like its not a capability of the forum/isp.  We would have to run a mail server to tie them together... It would be cool though!  Maybe after I win the lottery this weekend (its over $50million!)  We can buy our own ISP  Cheesy

I bought a box of animal crackers and it said on it "Do not eat if seal is broken." So I opened up the box, and sure enough...

alright..I have looked into this furthor and I think I can do it...(when Shawn said we looked into it he meant we discussed it while crappie fishing in the rain today..  icon_wink ) give me sometime to finish coding it...I have gotten it to connect to my mail server and retrieve messages but I am having trouble parsing the message into the database...I will also have to code some security restrictions and I will pick a handful of people to be able to be able to give live updates from the lake...
