The MailBurst Drop folder lets you place send mail, simply by placing a file into the folder. Here's how it works:
Create a file like that below (note the three parts, address list (the
first address is the FROM address), headers, and body are
separated by a blank line):
From: Admin, firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject: Beta 11 released
This is the message body. Note that the file began with a list
of address, followed by a blank line, followed by the message
headers, followed by this message body.
So, to use the drop folder, just have any application create a file like the one above, and place then in the MailBurst drop folder.
If you're only sending to a SINGLE address, you can just place the headers and message in the file and name it: "-email@example.com" Then, the message will be routed to that address. If you just wish to send a file and have the entire file treated as the BODY, and have MailBurst generate headers for you, name the file: "+firstname.lastname@example.org" and a simple set of headers will be added before the message is sent.
If you wish to generate a series of files to the same user, you can name the files "+email@example.com#1", "+firstname.lastname@example.org#2", and so on. MailBurst will ignore any characters in the file name after (and including) the "#" sign.
Note that the MailBurst Drop folder is enabled in the demo version, but will only send 100 files before quiting.
