hey everyone.  thought I would share this interesting technique.

 

I have a solution where users email measurement data from an Ipad (the measurement app is 3rd party, not FMGo).  It is delivered in the form of an attachment XML file.

 

I created a unique gmail folder/filter for all of these emails to be sent to.

 

Using 360Works Email plugin, check for new messages in this folder. and download attachment (to temporary location on local drive)

 

View file location with webviewer.

 

Pull content of file with GetLayoutObjectAttribute ("webviewer";"content").  I made my webviewer tranparent/no border and tiny.  So it is hidden.

 

Voilà!  all the raw XML data which I can easily parse!  Works like a charm.
