I am trying to determine if PageGate has the following capabilities.
Our current building Automation System (BAS) is configured to spit out alerts and notifications by email. We would like PageGate to take these emails, manipulate the contents, dump the contents into an XML formatted file in a predesgnated folder, and then start an external program (batch file).
Can I do this with PageGate?

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately, no, PageGate was never designed to do quite that. It can handle the incoming email no problem but spitting it back out as XML and running an external application are a little beyond the scope of the program.

How about taking the email and dumping it into an excel or DB format?

Well... technically, I suppose you could do that. I mean, you have to understand, PageGate is an application originally designed to send SMS and Email message alerts, so we never really coded it with the ability to output documents and files.

PageGate uses a MS Access database to store all of its data and messages and such. Any time the getMail module pulls in an email, if you didn't have any outbound method of communication set up, it would keep those messages tored in the messages table.

Is how PageGate records the information in Access configureable and documented? Are the queries documented?
Thanks.
