Re: xAP News 3.1 Released

Hi James,

Yep I use those too.

What I meant was a way for Floorplan to respond directly to commands sent
over smtp.  For example at the moment I use your Outlook plugin to
xap messages it receives by pop3:

If I send the following as an email:

Line1=Put the kettle on, I'll be home in ten minutes

Then the Outlook plugin will broadcast that as a xAP message once it
receives the email.

I think it would be useful for Floorplan to be able to do that but instead
of relying on polling a pop3 mailbox which introduces a delay, it would do
it immediately when an email is received over smtp?

It would also be good to be able to send Floorplan a simple xap message by
email like:

Class=floorplan.cmd (??)
script.execute (??)

and Floorplan would then immediately run the script

Hope that makes more sense??
