TIMMARGH.net ~ Put your Mac to sleep by sending a text message – This is kinda neat. One of the great sorrows of my recent life has been the loss of procmail. Mainly I used it for sorting mail and Apple’s Mail client does that fairly well, but this… this could be used to do those other nice procmaily things, like run a script based on an e-mail.
I’d never thought much about using AppleScript in a mail filter, but that’s pretty much what procmail does on UNIX. And with all the cool things you can do with AppleScript there could be a bajillion different permutations of things you could do. Of course… I can’t think of any I’d like to do off hand….
