Email to whatsapp interface

Is there any way I can send a message or attachments or photo to a Whatsapp
group via email?  Say like email to  mobile_telephone_number@xxx.com   gateway?

Sometimes, I could program email & hold it to be sent at a specific time so
this email to Whatsapp interface is great

From the link gheist gave, it says:
"WhatsApp cofounder: Sorry developers, no API for you"
Is this the answer?

Does anyone has a VB or Perl script that could run on a laptop to send the  sample
message below to a Whatsapp group:

Android intent system

Like most social apps on Android, WhatsApp listens to intents to share media and text. Simply create an intent to share text, for example, and WhatsApp will be displayed by the system picker:

Intent sendIntent = new Intent();
sendIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
sendIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "This is my text to send.");
sendIntent.setType("text/plain");
startActivity(sendIntent);

It is not possible.  Even within an iOS app you develop for an iPhone that has the What App app installed, the best you do is "wake up" Whats App with some text and other instructions, but Whats App does all the work from that point on.
