Invoking Perl script from an emailby stew (Scribe)
|on Aug 02, 2002 at 10:37 UTC||Need Help??|
stew has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Is it possible to invoke a Perl script from an email?
I have created and entry in /etc/mail/aliases thus..
When I try to send an email to 'firstname.lastname@example.org' It gets returned with errors.
If I change the entry in my aliases file to...
udb: "| perl /path/to/my/file.pl" - It does nothing.
Is what I'm trying to achieve possible or am I barking (mad / up the wrong tree)?
