NAME ^

Email::LocalDelivery::Store - deliver mail via Email::Store

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Email::LocalDelivery;
 use Email::FolderType::Register qw[register_type];
 register_type Store => sub { $_[0] =~ m/^DBI/i }; 
 ...
 Email::LocalDelivery->deliver($mail, $dsn) or die "couldn't deliver to $dsn";

 ...where $dsn is a full DBI DSN, including user= and password=, e.g.
 'DBI:mysql:database=DATABASE;host=HOSTNAME;port=PORT;user=USER;password=PASSWORD'

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is an Email::LocalDelivery wrapper for Email::Store, which is a "framework for database-backed email storage."

It allows you to easily swap in database email storage instead of Mbox or Maildir.

Just register the "Store" FolderType, like this:

and then call Email::LocalDelivery->deliver( $mail, $dsn )

This module was created to allow Siesta to archive mail in MySQL.

METHODS ^

deliver( $rfc822, @dsns )

$rfc822 is an RFC822 formatted email message, and @dsns is a list of DBI DSN strings.

Since Email::Store is instantiated with the DSN, and I really don't know what I'm doing, I had to eval 'use Email::Store $dsn' inside the deliver() method. I suspect that this will blow up if you try to pass more than one DSN, so I made it exit after the first one.

ATTENTION ^

Email::Store (obviously) requires some form of database backend. Since you will have already figured all that out, this module doesn't test your database connection itself.
