I have a comprehensive internal web site for my company, which handles a lot of crm functions as well as other customized functions.
I am trying to integrate all needed aspects into this, and am currently stumped on the easiest way to implement email.
The ideal thing i am going for is to program a simple front-end email client - i do want to program this as it is integrated, though i can use something already made if it is fully customizable., but i want a basic generic email client, such as Microsoft Outlook, as a customizable web-app that i can fully integrate into my own application.
I don't know what the best and easiest backend (preferrably java) package there is, or if any really good exist, for doing this. Preferrably it is easily configured, i put in the basic settings:
pop/imap (even imap only is fine) incoming server authentication encryption method outgoing server authentication
and i get the basic interface of viewing, and replyhing to emails. Nothing complex at all. I do want full control of it as i need to be able to read the content of these emails into my own internal database to save them in computerized customer files, etc. etc. i can figure that out as long as i can find the best solution to fit my needs on the above.
Does anyone have any really, really, good suggestions on this?
