URGENT!!!!!!: NEED MAILING SYSTEM USING PHP & MYSQL

Postby paulg7 » Tue Jun 29, 2004 12:07 am

Hi I get straight to the point I am new to php and I have no idea how to do it. My friend asked me to help him with his assignment to create PHP mailing system using mysql for a database. Mysql I can do but php I have no idea how to start. Below is the assignment requirement. If you could help me or get me intro right direction I would appreciate it very much.

My email: Paulg7@iprimus.com.au - thanks

Here goes:

“Create a suite of PHP scripts which simulates a mailing list system.

Creating en email system
The backend will be a mysql database in which one user may have many mail messages.

Required interfaces
a. user registration
b. user logon
c. the user can read messages from an inbox
d. the user can send email to other registered user
e. the user can delete mail messages

When a user registers they should have the option of having their login and password details saved in a cookie

When a user logs on, your system should first check for cookie. If cookie exists the user should be automatically logged on. If a cookie exists the user should be automatically logged on. If there is no cookie then the page should display input objects for the entry login details.”

Thanks for any feedback.
cheers
Paul

Exactly how urgent is this? This is a pretty large project. For a PHP expert, this would be about a two-week project, maybe less if you devoted a lot of hours to it. For a beginner, a month if you're lucky.

Thanks for taking interests in my problem

This assignmentis due very soon. I think it's gotta be done by the 15th of July.

I know is big just like any major project. I thought maybe there is a free code or maybe someone else did similar project based on mailing system.

I keep looking for some php codes to help me with this.

Hi Paul,
I have created a similar system in the past. If I had an online demonstration I could show you, however at the moment the site is offline.

I will see if I can modify this to how you ask tomorrow (Saturday) and e-mail you with any results.

Hope this is of help!!

Regards,
Andrew Berry
