Parse e-mail in Max to trigger event

Jul 23 2009 | 8:21 pm


I am looking to control a max patch remotely, and think that via email would be the best option (I could also use twitter or SMS if easier). Can anyone suggest a way to receive any of these services in Max 5? The simpler, the better.

Check out the net.mail.recv java class for use in [mxj] for receiving email in max. I’m not sure about twitter, I think the tweet-a-sound app can send tweets but i’m not sure about receiving them, it might be something to take a look at anyway.

I keep getting the message "unable to alloc instance". When I load [mxj net.mail.recv]. What am I doing wrong?

It’s not [mxj net.mail.recv]. Rather, you can use the class if you want to program a java class to be executed in a mxj.
Check java-doc in your Max5 folder. Then Tutorial 9.
