Let me explain what I'm trying to emulate. If you have seen any of the major job boards, they allow you to save "search agents". Those agents at least on Monster, Dice, HotJobs I think , spare you the hassle of going to the search page and reentering the criteria. The agents can act in various ways: 1-If you are on the site , you can execute from there. 2-You can also have it emailed and that comes in two flavors. a- the query is run for you and the results are sent in an email b-an email goes out with a link to a page, you hit "view" (on Monster) and your agent returns results.
My only guess is that the query is what's being grabbed and saved. You raise a good point about security , but users don't actually get to see the query. All they are getting is the results , from the one they decided to save.
