I have a form in a web that send an email with information of contact and other to OpenERP v7. That email create a lead.

Is it possible to get that info and save it into OE for create a new contact in automatic way, by example?

Or for be more clear: is it possible without programming a new module or without making changes inside of one existing?

Can anyone elaborate on how to do this safely. Openerp has warnings about performing XML RPC correctly . . .

Any simple how to guide, even just for a few fields?

I really wanty my website form to fill in the openerp lead's fields automatically, having to do so manually each time is a pain.

Thanks in advance.

I say yes, it is possible, by changing your web form action, what you can do is to write php script that makes xml rpc call to the OpenERP. and create a record of crm.lead model in OpenERP. By that way when normal user will submit the form it will create new record of Lead in OpenERP. without changing existing OpenERP module.
