How to make an email web app
Hi, I would like to know how to build a web application for sending and receiving emails. Basically, something like Apple's Mail app except on the web. And I particularly want it to work with emails from a Gmail account.
What else would I need to know please? Basically I'm sort of comfortable with the 'web app' part, but I don't have much idea of what I would need to do for the 'email' part and the 'working with Gmail' part.
This is not so simple to explain here, so I will post one tutorial that I have used first time I needed to do something like that: http://www.dreamincode.net/forums/topic/258849-making-a-webmail-system-php-part-1/
Let me know if you need any further help!!
