The aim is to have a Service Desk like feature for Plone, whereby members of the site can create blog post, comments and so forth directly from their emails.
The target audience is people who use email immensely like doctors, lawyers, governors, accountants, etc.
I was thinking of writing it and call it
plone.ServiceDesk, but it's better to re-use than rebuilding the wheel.
Thus far, I know I am going to need an IMAP email service even if there is an existing addon or not. If I am going to build it, I'm assuming I would need an incoming email hook to act on the content and convert it to Plone content. Of course, this service desk system should provide the means of whitelisting and blacklisting emails so that spam does not get into the system in case the IMAP spam filtering service does not remove it.
Security will definitely be a concern.......
So yea, is there an addon for Plone 5 for this?
