There is this guy in my office. He wants to build a contact database. Simple enough. but the purpose of the database is to keep track and to allow viewing of every email and corrospondence according to each contact entry.
So i was thinking. Can it be done in php?
I know i can build a contact database easily. But can i have the system check for incoming and outgoing mail. Copy them to the database, organize them according to a contact person. and then allow this guy to view it all.. easily.. and reliabily.
I think its possible.. but how do i go about starting to do this?
I know it involves having to find the outlook and outlook express email files. delimitting them, breaking them up, ect...
perhaps it has already been done?
thanks for any input.
