  1. fetchmail to get the mails from your imap account
  2. Raspberry Pi automate certain tasks – script example

Now, if you have followed these :

fetchmail

ssmtp

Then you already have a working system for sending and receiving mail. Now, you can set the mda in the fetmailrc to a script which can do few things for you. The script below will get a page and mail it to you, if you have the subject as “get” and send “wake on LAN” to desired PC if you have subject as “wol”. Cool :)

Original idea from here.

Here is the script:

#!/bin/bash

expectedFrom=""
expectedFrom2=""
homePC="MAC Here"

mailHelp() {
	sendMail $1 "Help - Possible Commands" "Help"
}

sendMail() {
	echo "To: "$1 > $tmpMail
	echo "From: From address here" >> $tmpMail
	echo "Subject: "$2 >> $tmpMail
	echo "Content-Type: text/html" >> $tmpMail
	echo "" >> $tmpMail
	echo $3 >> $tmpMail
	cat $tempMail >> $tmpMail
	cat $tmpMail|/usr/sbin/ssmtp  $1
}
#here we start the actual processing

rightSender=0
sender=""
tmpFile=/tmp/mailtemp
tmpMail="/var/tmp/mailtxt.txt"
tempMail="/tmp/tosend.txt"
>$tempMail
>$tmpFile
>$tmpMail

#Write the mail to tmpFile
while read line
do
	echo $line >> $tmpFile
done

grep "From:" $tmpFile | grep $expectedFrom > /dev/null
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
	rightSender=1
	sender=$expectedFrom
fi

grep "From:" $tmpFile | grep $expectedFrom2 > /dev/null
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
	rightSender=1
	sender=$expectedFrom2
fi

if [ $rightSender -eq 1 ]; then
	task=`grep "Subject:" $tmpFile`
	task=${task:9}
	task=`echo $task | tr [:upper:] [:lower:]`

	echo $task | grep "help" > /dev/null
	if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
		mailHelp $sender
		exit
	fi
fi
while read line
do
	if [[ $line =~ ^$|^Content*:*|^charset=*|^--=* ]]; then
		continue;
	fi
	echo "LINE :: $line"
	case $task in
		get)
			cmd="wget -o /dev/null -O - $line"
		;;
		wol)
			cmd="sudo etherwake $$line"
		;;
		*)
			cmd="$line"
		;;
	esac
	eval $cmd >> $tempMail
done < <( sed '1,/^$/ d' $tmpFile|sed '/^--$/,$ d')
sendMail $sender "Output result of command $task" "Happy Hacking"
