    Provides an XMLRPCView to access it's drop method.
    Dropping a mailstring ( a plaintext string containing the whole email including envelope),
    a plone content type Email will be generated, the data field will contain the mailstring.

Email:
    
    File like content type conatining the mailstring inside the data field.
    View registered for IEmail: emailview ( as standard view )
    shows: 
        
        - headers Subject, From, To, Cc
        
        - body (prefers text/html parts over text/plain parts)

Adapters

MailDropBox:
                
    Basic adapter, providing a drop method generating an Email out of the dropped mailstring

BlogMailDropBox:

    Advanced adapter, creating a news item out of the dropped mailstring.

EventMailDropBox:

    Advanced adapter, creating an event out of text/calendar attachments inside the dropped mailstring

Utilities
*********

BaseDropBoxFactory:

    Used to find objects providing IMailDropBoxMarker with id=key. Used by
    the deliver action in mailtoplone.contentrules.

ICalEventFactory:

    Taking an icalendar string, this utility creates an ATEvent out of each
    VEVENT. The implementation supports keywordarguments, passing them to
    invokeFactory. 
    This implementation correctly imports events exported from plone, as a
    first approach.
    It is used by the EventMailDropBox.

You can use these markerinterfaces (@@manage_interfaces) to mark a folder
for mailtoplone (remember to reindex the marked object). Afterwards the
folder can be found and delivered mails to.
