I need a basic application created where a script that will run every 30 minutes as a cron job and will use IMAP to check email in a single account, extract the sender's address, and look up that address in a database. If the address exists in the database, a second email address is pulled from the database and the email message is forwarded to the second email address and then deleted from the IMAP account. The script will repeat for all current mail in the email account.
I only want the most simple user interface at this time. The only functions needed will be to search, add, edit, and delete records from the database.
If this project can be completed successfully I will contract with you to add more functions and features. To continue working on this project you must feel confidant in retreaving POP3 email messages, parsing the message for commends, and then processing those commands.
You don't have to be an expert and know everything, but you do need to have some experience and be willing to work hard to learn addional skils and not give up. You must also have pretty good English, and willing to communicate fully and in detail. You must also not do ANY work beyond what is requested, even if you are try to be nice. I am looking for a professional attitude or someone that wants to learn what that means and I will teach you.
I will provide the fields needed for the database and the program specifications once I have chosen someone. I have some programming background, but you will be able to do this work much quicker than I can.
When you bid, please also state the number of hours of work you think it will take and your hourly rate. I expect you to over-estimate because things always take longer than we think. :-) Don't worry about being the lowest bid, worry about being the most realistic bid.
