Mailbox module helps you configure your emails with plugin that uses this library. Once configured properly, this module is useful to rtBiz and its addons in many ways.
Consider this to be a generic utility which lets you connect your mailbox with any plugin. Once it is connected, this module starts parsing emails from your mailbox and delivers them to you / your addon. With those emails received from mailbox module, you can do alot many things that you can imagine.
For example, if a new email comes to
email@example.com then mailbox module parses the email and delivers it to you. You could setup a beautiful canned reply message as a response to every email that comes to
firstname.lastname@example.org. You can develop such functionality within one of your rtBiz addon & it will work like a charm.
This was just one use case. There are many more things that you can achieve using this module. Please feel free to contact us in case you have a wonderful idea that we can help you with.
