Ie not real accounts all exist only on mysql, and since I changed from a

All boxes are in form of [EMAIL PROTECTED]

I have an interesting situation.

I have a windows based sms server, this machine works in the following
It watches a shared directory for txt files that must be formatted in
certain way and periodically sends them off to mobile.

What I want to do is create a SMTP to SMS gateway.

Easy in theory!

Rite a script to map shared drive, ensure it's connected and write the txt
files in dir.

However the second part I have no idea, somehow I need to watch the mbox
file of say a e-mail account called "test"

And IF a mail arrives parse it look for a security key if exists convert
txt file and copy to shared dir.

Hi Marcel,

Do you have a FreeBSD machine in the mix somewhere?  If so, this sounds
 like a job for procmail:

Using procmail, you can create a script to process incoming emails and
process/reformat them as you see fit.
