I am trying to implement MailControl in my RPI running OpenHabian latest version. However, I couldn’t find a proper tutorial for this. I tried searching on Google for hours but with no luck.
The best I can get is the Wiki page for MailControl but how can I install that (I am not very good at linux commands but still can try if some one can help me).
I tried using APT-Get but don’t know from where I can get the sources for this. Also, if I use APT-Get, are all dependencies will automatically download?
maybe you are confusing the MailControl Binding with another piece of software?
There is no apt-get installation to be done for the MailControl Binding to work in OH2. It’s just an addon that needs configuration, no additional external software (other than an smpt server of course :))
By the way: Are you sure that you want to be able to control OH2 Items using email?
This last reply to this tpic was 6 months ago I know but I don’t understand one point.
Why in the Mail Actions we just propose the sendMail function ?
Depending IFTTT is a way but maybe not a good target…
I prefere using native target addons actions instead of implementing new links with IFTTT…
I think it’s a good way to propose functions like "searchMail(subject,string_to_search) or readMail options in a complement way of the current addon Mail.
Is someone work on this subject ?
I didn’t find any work on this.
I’m sure it could be usefull.
If someone has an idea for this subject it can help me.
I discover there is a binding “mail” in github but I haven’t it in 2.4.0 : there is only mail in “actions”.
So my new question is : is mail must be an action or a binding ?
If I want to impleemnt new functions in the mail (there is only sendMail for now) must I propose to modify the “action” mail or a binding “mail”.
It’s a big confusion for me.
