WwwFetch E-Mail Gateway
The WwwFetch E-mail Gateway allows to fulfil e-mail queries to the WwwFetch utility that is originally located at http://linux.netmor.com/wwwfetch/. The query results can be either sent via e-mail (MIME or uuencoded ZIP file) or stored at anonymous ftp site (URL ftp://linux.netmor.com/wwwfetch/).
You should send your message to email@example.com. Depending on the 'Subject:' field parameter, the following action is implemented:
1. 'Subject:' field contains the word 'query' -- the routine procedure is implemented
2. 'Subject:' field contains the word 'info' or 'help' -- this file is sent back.
3. 'Subject:' field contains the word 'remove' -- your email address is removed from the distribution list.
For querying, the following options are available and should be written in the body of a message (without any brackets!):
Query: <Search Pattern>
URL: <additional URLs separated by spaces>
OS: [Dos/Win3.x or UNIX/Win95/Mac]
Files: < # of files <=10 >
Limit: < # of MBytes <= 1.0 >
Send: [No or MIME or UUE]
Split: <size in KBytes>
e x p l a n a t i o n
A Boolean search pattern can be written here. Example:
Clinton OR Dole NOT Perot
Not more than 10 extra URLs are allowed to be added here. It is better to add one line for each URL.
Options are 'Yes' (retrieve images) or 'No'. Default: 'No'.
Options are 'DOS' (filenames have 3-letter extension, e.g. 'index.htm')
or 'UNIX' (filenames have generally no limits on extension length).
Those using Windows3.x can select 'DOS' while Windows95 and Mac users
can select 'UNIX'. Default: 'DOS'.
Number of files to retrieve. Less or equal than 15. Default: 5.
Upper limit to the total size of files (in MBytes). Less or equal
than 1.0 MBytes. Default: 0.5.
Options are 'No' (do not send ZIP file via e-mail), 'MIME' (send
base64-encoded ZIP file), and 'UUE' (send uuencoded ZIP file).
Specifies the maximum size before splitting into parts (in KBytes).
Only for MIME mails. Default: 10000.
ATTENTION: all parameters are case-insensitive except of 'Query:'!!!
Parameters 'Query:' or 'URL:' are mandatory, i.e., one of these two MUST be included for querying. The others are optional. Note that the order of parameters is unimportant.
