IBS Mappro and IBS Calendar are now available for download and support on the WordPress Plugin repository.
I took a good look at the Postie plugin and it has everything needed to support this website’s goals. Not wanting to reinvent the wheel IBS Mailbox is being dropped the Postie plugin will be used. The only caveat is that the hosting site must provide IMAP PHP extensions. That was not always the case for Godaddy hosting. While Gmail provides both POP3 and IMAP and both require ssl the preference is to use IMAP.
For map tracking it was a simple matter to add a filterPostie.php file to do that processing.
I started in Tucson and stopped in Globe.
