Some years ago a client was receiving large numbers of photos via email from contractors on a daily basis and I was asked to automate the system from them.
I created a secure area on the website where contractors could upload their photos simply by dragging a folder from their PC into a box on a web page.
This page used a java applet (an amended version of this http://www.radinks.com/upload/
This method worked fine for anyone using windows but not a Mac (but this was only a few at the time). Everyone at the time was using a digital camera.
Since then more and more of the contractors are now using smart phones or tablets to take photos and there are substantially more Mac users.
I decided it was time to update the system of uploading photos and thought the best way was probably to go back to emailing in the photos to an email address that was piped to a php script which could process the photos. The idea being that regardless of where the photos were (android phone, iPhone, tablet, PC, Mac etc), they could be attached to an email and sent in.
So the first step is to save the attached photos.
After hunting around I found this class
On testing it works perfectly apart from if the email is sent from a Mac. The only way I can get it to work on a Mac is if only one photo is attached and it's attached by dragging from the desktop.
I did write to the developer but he replied that he didn't have time to help at the moment. I notice that his web page has recently been changed and that he's now charging for help. He does say that the class has support for inline content type (from mail app on mac)
So my question is, does anyone know what might need to be changed to the class to make it work with emails (with multiple attachments) sent from a Mac?
Or failing that, does anyone have another solution to the problem?
