 There is a program called asap that is found at the SysAdmin Mag ftp
 site. It is in one of the monthly archive files.. you will need bash,
 perl and kermit. Get:

  ftp://ftp.mfi.com/pub/sysadmin/may96.tar.Z


> But then how to you setup the eMail account to do that?

 easy an alias... mine look like:

 pbranson:"| /usr/local/bin/asap.pl"
