that's xactly what I was aiming at, years ago, I recall a fellow in
Budapest published some cmds/setup to do precisely that, execute arbitrary
stuff and get output as email
I need to look up the procmail, my email is in a 'virtual user', not a
'linux user', and, AFAIK, procmail looks at /home/usernamesomething,
whereas, mine is in /var/mail/vhost/vnamesomething
I think I'll try with +subaddressing for the email name
might even try to create a 'vcal' file for date/time, then, once on the
Palm, I can use my (ok, John's) pscripts to massage the data
