New to n8n— pretty neat but I’ve been banging my head against a wall for an hour.
I’m trying to check a series of mailboxes based on some JSON I’m getting from an HTTP query. Seem like it’s right in n8n’s wheelhouse at the outset.
I couldn’t seem to route a function node’s output into a EmailReadImap node directly— I imagine because it’s a trigger and it polls/waits rather than returning if there’s no mail. Doesn’t seem to be a non-trigger imap polling node or a pop3 node. I saw people mention that ExecuteWorkflow passes its flow context into the new workflows through the start node– the GUI doesn’t have any hints about the right way to do it and I can’t find anything in the docs about it.
Do you have more in-depth technical documentation? Is what I’m doing impossible? Maybe I’m holding a shovel and trying to use it like a spoon? Should really just be using a regular scripting language and system tools?
Thanks in advance, and much appreciated— Definitely a neat tool.
