Instead of sending a triggered email like a normal ESP (Email Service Provider), FTP ESP loads a small CSV file via FTP (File Transfer Protocol: either SFTP or FTPS) onto your FTP Server, containing the same information as would be used to send that email (email address, mapped fields etc).

You integrate by writing a simple program to scan for these files, read the contents, and trigger a corresponding action in whatever custom technology you use.
