Rails, Advanced Email Processing

Hi, we got a project with extensive requirements to trigger events
based on incoming emails on a rails platform. We need to reach each
incoming email, parse it and trigger logic based on it. Has anyone
ever worked on such a system?

1) Do you know any books / resources / etc which explicitly elaborate
this topic?
2) Any pointers to what within rails should we work with? Any
suggestions

Action Mailer seems to be not designed for something v extensive.
Please advise

Hey. This isn't a terrible thing to undertake but there's not so much
information available. I wrote a couple of blog posts about the
subject of receiving
email(http://steve.dynedge.co.uk/2010/09/07/incoming-email-in-rails-3-choosing-the-right-approach/)
and testing
(http://steve.dynedge.co.uk/2010/11/29/receiving-test-driven-incoming-email-for-rails-3/)
this. If you get things right you can split them over a couple of
different Mailers if you need to.

If you need any more info just shout.
