Any Chance we'll see that feature back on autohost soon, or will it be gone for good?

Not likely it will return, the verification required to authenticate sender would be too complex.

a shame. I had my "getting turn from email account", "doing turn", "uploading turn" nicely scripted here for another game. My hopes were to use that for AH too.

Yeah... makes me wonder too. Rolling Eyes

How hard could it be anyway to assume upload pw is first 4 characcters in message body and then to check it with script?

What is the code written in? Is is it avialable in (anon) CVS/arch/bitkeeper or similar?

I've written a number of email based servers, so would be willing to look at producing a patch to do the password checking.

Written in PERL, sorry but no CVS access available.

Well if you are interested, I'd be happy to look at the problem - email, ftp, or http transfer are all fine.

My email based dice server is all perl based, so I'm used to such problems... (oh the joy of taint mode Wink

[edit: fix typo]
