accept FTP uploads and forward via SMTP

Project description

# ftpmail

This program accepts FTP uploads (e.g. from a document scanner) and forwards them as emails via SMTP.

It'll terminate the FTP connection as fast as possible, this means directly after the upload has finished.
The email process will happen in a separate thread to not block the uploader.

It can do optional optical character recognition (OCR) for scanned PDFs and embed the read text into the PDF file
using the great [pdfsandwich](http://www.tobias-elze.de/pdfsandwich/) by Tobias Elze.
