    Incoming mail event with Sendmail


    Hi All
    I would like to trigger a Perl script once an email myMail AT mydomain.com is received. I would like to use SENDMAIL for that.

    I know how to allow a specific eMail addresses to be received,
    but I don't know how to run a perl script once this eMail is received.

    I don't want to use PROCMAIL

    Regards and Thank

    Well you really don't want to run perl, but if you insist, take a look at smrsh. That's how thing like procmail and spamassassin get triggered.

    Remember that most sendmail prograrms run jailed, so your "package" has to be inclusive, or have rights to the libs you need.
