Sample Scripts

MailHTML (VB script)

This script was invented as a sort of website publishing system. If used in the connection client for mail, you can convert a received message into HTML, and write this HTML in the publishing database of your website.

Example: you have a news section on your website, and find it too difficult to daily edit a number of HTML files, and FTP them on your webdirectory. Sending a message in plain text to a specific address may be much easier.

The code:
