Collecting Email via IMAP

Hi all,

I’m in the process of building a dashboard to be a CRM for my own clients and orders for items they purchase through me. I’d like to have a component which will periodically go off and check a particular mailbox, search for new/unread emails and then parse them into the DB and if an email address matches an existing client, add it to their account for processing.

Asana/Accelo have this feature as does Trello, etc to a degree. There are javascript libraries around for collecting email via IMAP, which would be quite suitable but I’m not sure how to go about getting something like that working.

Does anyone have anything like this that they’ve implemented or have wanted to?

Cheers,
Scott
