Email photo to upload

Hi -

I am curious has anyone worked on a project where you emailed a photo to your app - which then takes the attached image and attaches it to your account?

For instance, I have a photo gallery that I want to send images from my cellphone to. I need to authenticate that the email came from the one that's on record, if so, upload the photo to my account.

Any ideas/help appreciated.


Yes, have a look at MailFetcher ( and the mms2r gem which will pull photos from cellphone MMS messages
