CMud and txt msging/email
 
A friend of mine has mentioned he has tells from other players forwarded to his cell phone(txt) and email using CMud.

I'm just curious, is this even possible, is he pulling my chain, or is there a way to set this up?

Please and thank you? :)

It's possible, you just have to script it. Your choices, I guess, would be either COM scripting (connecting to Outlook or whatever email client you use) or URL scripting (parsing the html data from your webmail page).

I use GMail. Do you have an example by chance? I tried searching the forums but was unable to find out how.

What about sending over txt msgs? or like Gmail Chat?

I imagine the same processes would be used. I know someone sends tweets out about common in-game events. There was a scripting-enabled plugin for ZMud that let you chat with other ZMud users, but that doesn't work with CMud and the talk about adding a native chat module into CMud obviously never made it off the wishlist.

Shucks. I checked out gmail, they have some gmailapp stuff on their site, but I couldn't figure out how to incorporate it into cmud. If anyone feels adventurous and would like to offer me assistance, I'd be very grateful :D

Thanks Matt for your info.

You can use Lua to actually script it, as I do. And you can send text messages via email as long as you know the carrier's text-message email address.

By the way, there's a finished COM scripting script in ZMUD's finished forums, I posted the changes for CMUD a long while back.

But let me elaborate on the Lua scripting. You can use smtp.lua and OpenSSL to send email from Gmail's account. I've been doing that for well over a year now, it's just a bit of a pain to initially put together. I can attempt to put together a little package for you and try to explain the steps, if you'd like.

Charneus, I would appreciate that very much if it's not too much trouble. Thank you very much!

I'll see if I can explain it as easily as possible, then. Personally, I love it as it seems to work much better and quicker than COM scripting does.

I think I may have isolated the key components necessary for sending mail through Lua.

1. First, download this file: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16729822/email.zip
2. Extract everything to the root of your Program Files/CMUD directory. If it asks you to overwrite anything, go ahead and do it.
3. Next, open up Program Files/CMUD/luaemail.lua in notepad.
4. Look for the following lines:
Code:
from = '<yourlogin@gmail.com>',
user = 'yourlogin',
password = 'yourpassword',


Change it appropriately. For instance, if your email was ImJoeSchmoe@gmail.com, you'd change the from to:
Code:
 from = '<ImJoeSchmoe@gmail.com>'

Make sure you keep the angle brackets.
5. After making the necessary changes, it's time to go to CMUD and enter the Lua prompt (Ctrl + `)
6. Type: require 'luaemail' to call the functions into CMUD.
7. To send a message, type (in Lua prompt): sendMessage("some@emailaddress.com","Your subject","Your message")

That should be about it. If you get any issues whatsoever, you may need to download the OpenSSL Visual C++ Redistributables, which you can find here.

If you run into any problems, let me know. I've tried to streamline it as much as possible, but I never know how it's going to turn out. Also, if you want to send a text message, you can do so using the following format:

sendMessage("1234567890@carriertextemail.com","",Text from CMUD!")

You can look up your carrier's specific email address by googling your carrier's name and "text message email". Lastly, you can send multiple line emails as well with the inclusion of <br> at the proper places, as it recognizes HTML code and will apply it properly. You can put this all into an alias, doing:

Code:
#ALIAS sendemail {#LUA {sendMessage(zs.param(1), zs.param(2), zs.param(3)}}


and just typing sendemail "me@myown.com" "Subject" "Message"

I hope this helps!

Thanks for taking the time to do this Charneus. Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner, but have been busy.

I tried this, but unfortunately it did not work.

When I try require 'luaemail' I get:

Parse Error
Error parsing command:
loop or previous error loading module 'luaemail' (line 1)

require 'luaemail'

Stack trace:
[C]:-1:in function "require"
[string "code"]:1:in main chunk"



if I try to send an email I get:

Parser Error
Error parsing command:
attempt to call global 'sendMessage' (a nil value) (line 1)

sendMessage("my test email address","testing","test")

Stack trace:
[string "code"]:1:in main chunk"

All the files were extracted into c:\progra~1\cmudpro\
I tried installing the visual c+, but that didn't help

Any ideas what happened?

Again, thanks for your help!

I missed something.

The very first time I try to run require 'luaemail' I get this

Parse Error
Error parsing command:

module 'socket' not found:
no field package.preload['socket']
no file '.\socket.lua'
no file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\CMUDPro\lua\socket.lua'
no file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\CMUDPro\lua\socket\init (line 11)

Copy the contents of the luaemail.lua file, change command prompt to Lua command prompt, paste the contents and hit enter. What happens when you do that?

there is no socket.lua in the zip file. I tried downloading socketlua from another website, but I still couldn't get it to function properly.

Try downloading the zip file again and copying the contents over to the same folder. I added two more folders. Let me know how it works out from there.

Parse Error
Error parsing command:
"error loading module 'ssl' from file '.\ssl.dll':
The specified procedure could not be found. (line 0)

require 'luaemail'

Stack trace:

[C]:-1:in a C function
[C]:-1:in function "require"
.\luaemail.lua:5:in main chunk

After that, sendmail fails like normal.

I'll see what I need to do on my end here, then update it once I figure it out. I'm documenting the steps this time to make sure I get everything, too. :p

Have you had any luck digging up all the required files to make this work?

Sorry, been busy with school and whatnot, but I may have found something. Once I'm out of class, I'll update the post. Sorry for taking so long on it!

If you have too much trouble, it shouldn't be that hard to script an SMTP (telnet) session in CMUD for email and most of the big cellphone providers have (used to have?) email->text gateways.

Example:
220 mail.example.com ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.1/8.13.2; Tue, 16 Apr 2013 18:19:50 -0400 (PDT)
helo example.com
250 mail.example.com Hello testserv.att.com [111.7.212.178], pleased to meet you
mail from:tarn@example.com
250 2.1.0 tarn@example.com... Sender ok
rcpt to:charneusl@example.com
250 2.1.5 charneus@example.com... Recipient ok
data
354 Enter mail, end with "." on a line by itself
From: tarn@example.com
To: charneus@example.com
Subject: test message

This is the first line of a test message.
Second line.
Lst line.
.
250 2.0.0 w67JFrbs485232 Message accepted for delivery
quit
221 2.0.0 mail.example.com closing connection

For a quick and dirty solution, try this.

You'll need to set:
messagetext
msgsubject
recipientemail
senderemail
senderserver

in a session defined to connect to port 25 of whatever mail server your ISP tells you to use (it probably blocks direct connections to arbitrary mail servers).

Then, call the alias sendemail

Might need tweaking if your particular server responses are different..

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<cmud>
<class name="smtp">
<trigger priority="20" regex="true">
<pattern>220(.+)</pattern>
<value>#echo matched 2 2 0
#NOOP the server's greeting
helo @senderserver
</value>
</trigger>
<var name="senderserver">mail.example.com</var>
<var name="senderemail">"sender@example.com"</var>
<trigger priority="50" regex="true">
<pattern>250 (.+)</pattern>
<value>step</value>
</trigger>
<var name="msgstate">3</var>
<alias name="sendemail">
<value>msgstate = 0
#connect</value>
</alias>
<alias name="step">
<value>#SWITCH (@msgstate = 0) {
msgstate = 1
mail from: @senderemail
} (@msgstate = 1) {
msgstate = 2
rcpt to: @recipientemail
} (@msgstate = 2) {
msgstate = 3
data
} (@msgstate = 3) {
#NOOP after skipping the state when server says 354
quit}
{
#NOOP Shouldn't happen...
#echo Error in SMTP, stepped past end of defined steps
}</value>
</alias>
<var name="recipientemail">"receiver@example.com"</var>
<var name="messagetext">abcdefg
testing
hijklmnop
</var>
<trigger priority="110" regex="true">
<pattern>354 (.+)</pattern>
<value>#ECHO matched 3 5 4
From~: @senderemail
To~: @recipientemail
Subject~: @msgsubject
%crlf
@messagetext %crlf
~.%crlf
msgstate = 3
</value>
</trigger>
<var name="msgsubject">Test message</var>
<trigger priority="130" regex="true">
<pattern>221 (.*)</pattern>
<value>#NOOP and we're done... server is disconnecting
#DISCONNECT
</value>
</trigger>
</class>
</cmud>
