in reply to Call Perl via email

Here is a way to do it without procmail using Email::Filter and a sendmail interface such as Email::Sender.

In ~/.forward

| filter_mail

In ~/bin/filter_mail

use Email::Filter; my $mail = Email::Filter->new(emergency => "~/emergency_mbox"); $mail->accept("$ENV{HOME}/Mail/new") unless $mail->subject =~ /magic_k +eyword/; # usually exit here send_mail(); sub send_mail { # see docs for Email::Sender }
