    automate letter creation by email etc.

    Hubertus Mueller

      hello,

       

      I would like to find a solution for letter creation automation. The idea is I send an email to my server-mac / or put a text document in a special dropbox folder, so that this email or text is processed automatically to put its text content  into the body of a letter with my letterhead etc.

       

      like this:

       

      email to server watching address

       

      subject: create business letter

       

      body:

       

      [from] me [/from] -> puts my name in the placeholder

      [to] adress here [/to] -> fills out the address part of the letter

      [body] ...

      [signature] yes [/]-> puts my signature file (or already on the template)

       

      then this letter could be sent directly back to me by mail, or to a printer or to a fax...

       

      how could I do this? I have indesign CS3, filemaker.

       

      your help is very appreciated...
