Slackmail is a simple email-to-slack proxy.
You've got a service that supports email notifications for unexpected/interesting
events. That's great, but you check Slack way more than email (and/or you want to
share the news with a team). Instead of badgering service XYZ to add support for
slack, just run this server and have them "email" you:
pip install [--user] git+https://github.com/iodine/slackmail
By default, the servers listen on localhost, port 5025. This is to simplify testing locally. But feel free to run on port 25 and just add an MX record to have it operate as a "real" email server!
Simple single hook server
slackmail-local\ --webhook-url='https://mydomain.slack.com...&token=123'\ [--listen-address=host:port]\ [--authorization_token=secureME]
If you specify the
authorization_token flag, only messages containing the token
somewhere in the subject or message body will be forwarded to Slack.
Database enabled server
The default database used is just a SQLite database called
mail.db. It will
be created in whatever directory you run the slackmail-db command.
