Hello,

ok what exactly i want is :

- i have a blob site , i want to make it enable email receiving function ie. if users email their blog to email address like to user1.blog@mywebsite.com(or something user1.secretCode@mywebsite.com) their email is posted to their blog with user.mywebsite.com (same like bloggers.com or blogspot.com email-to-blog function )
so how do i achieve that?

Your Help Is Greatly Appreciated
Thanks

- Rajendra Pondel

It's a complex function, not well-suited to a forum. The answer is to spend a few months writing some scripts to implement this function.

Be aware that "secretCode" will be problematic, and that a lot of effort will be required to ensure that these codes cannot be spoofed or discovered using brute-force methods. In fact, using such a system *invites* brute-force attacks.

It would be far simpler, cheaper, and faster to set up a standard multi-user blogging package than to implement this custom solution.

ok, i got your point with brute-force attacks,

what i am planning to have mobile blog site, which is meant for mobile users, most probbly doing blog via mobile so i have three way to get posted to blog:

1) by using form directly through web/wap site
2) by email-to-blog mechanism, actually i want to use mms-to-blog mechanism
3) the third is, sms-to-blog mechanism, which i also want to achive,

so ok i know its going to be big heavy, but we have to do anything

and yeah jim, as u said abt brute-force attack, we cant stop it by using some mechanish like using time delaying between blog post.

Doesn't you thing this things should be done?

There's too many security problems involved to make this a happy project. I second jdMorgan's suggestion to go with a standard multi-user blog or cms... even though those have their own security problems as well, but to a far lesser degree.

Because it is far more secure than what was asked in the first post of this thread. Hence the suggestion to find the right application to do what you want instead of rolling your own.
