    Upload by email! How?

    I have one of those stupid image hosting sites. I want to have some new features and one of them is the ability to upload images via email that are sent to a particular email of my own. Does anyone have any idea how this is done and which languages in addition to Php do I need to use (I'm assuming is not such a simple concept). I have found one site that tells me that there are three processes involved, preprocessing the e-mail looking at its headers, extracting its contents (via something called ripMIME ?) and uploading it.

    Not being the brightest person in the world, I need step by step guidiance as to how to do this. If anybody has any idea I think it would be very nice to share since I think there are many people that wonders how this is done and are too shy or lazy to question it.

    Thanks in advance to those who try to help.
