Some external data sources and services support E-Mail data exchange. E.g [1]
forbids explicitly to parse data, but offers to send them by mail freely (I
think [2] has something similar).

According to [3] a mail forward for "drtrigon+subs...@toolserver.org" was
created, now all mail to this address get stored into
$HOME/data/subster/mail_inbox and can be parsed by the subster bot (e.g. on
daily basis) in order to get the data.

This mechanism can be used e.g. for [4], [5] (gives just a notice that new data
are available) and may be (hopefully) others too.

[5] http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vorlage:Infobox_Kreditinstitut/DatenDE

As mentioned on [3] one could also consider to use something similar (e.g. mail
forward to "drtrigon+bot_cont...@toolserver.org") to remote control the bots
via mail... ![][1]))
