I set up a sendmail server on a fedora core linux box..

My need is to run a script that will scan incoming e-mail in one e-mail box and send an e-mail to my wireless device if certin words are in the subject line.

I have a Rule set up with my office client, but I think it will be more efficient if I can do it at the server level, but I have no idea how to get started with this???

Any help?

Thanks,

Mike

I've never tried to do this, but it seems to me that you ought to be able to do this with procmail. 'man procmailex' has a number of examples, including filters on Subject:
