I'm not familiar with the "!bg" directive, but it's reasonably likely
that you'd need to quote the pipeline in order for it to be parsed
correctly:

!bg 'ifconfig tun0 | mail -s "IP Address" my_mail@my_domain.com'

(for example -- not sure if the quotes I used will work; depends on how
the file is parsed).
