Perl programs for automatic service message polling and sending them by email
Released 2011-10-21: poll2email.tar.gz
Updated 2012-08-07: Updated 'svc_poll_www.pl' to handle login and poll/ack token. Updated both programs to handle empty filter list.
When the introduction of the new registry system a number of email based notifications were removed and replaced by service messages over the EPP channel.
Some registrars have requested the possibility of still receiving emails for some notification types.
The registry system is an EPP based system and Norid will continue to use the EPP channel as the main notification channel.
We have however, chosen to offer a couple of simple poll programs that might help to solve this situation.
'svc_poll_netdri.pl' and 'svc_poll_www.pl' are perl programs which polls your service messages and sends the interesting ones by email to an email address of your choice.
By use of filtering rules configured for the program itself, possibly combined with filter rules in your email reader, you can control which service messages that are interesting for your usage.
By calling the poll script from a cron job, this polling can be done regularly and automatically.
