How many times have you had to consume some sort of POP3, IMAP, or local mailbox for incoming content, or had to otherwise construct an application driven by e-mail? One too many times, I’m sure.

This small Django application will allow you to specify mailboxes that you would like consumed for incoming content; the e-mail will be stored, and you can process it at will (or, if you’re in a hurry, by subscribing to a signal).

The Django-mailbox retrieves the e-mail messages by eg. IMAP, POP and then erases them to not download again the next time. Django-mailbox is not a typical mail program, and is a development library that makes it easy to process email messages in Django. A mailbox in that case plays the role of a message queue that needs to be processed. Messages processed from the queue are removed from the queue.
