Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Pop3 Monitoring, Forwarding Emal

Posted by: lstrickl Nov 18 2002, 02:31 PM

I would like to be able to monitor a POP3 mailbox for new mail. When that new mail arrives, i would like a different message sent to another POP3 mailbox as notification....

1. Customer sends order to 'sales@mycompany.com'
2. Monitor notices new mail and sends mail to 'salesman@yahoo.com' saying that a new order has been placed.

I do not want to forward the entire order email directly to the sales email address.

Does anyone have a direction on this one? I have not been able to find anything that will do this for me.

Thanks in advace,
Lee

Check this ...

http://pop3check.sourceforge.net/

It runs from the console and is highly configurable. What you can do is, configure it to look for new mail on "sales@mycompany.com" and when new mail is received, execute a shell script that will send you a custom email message to wherever you want with what you want it to say ...
