Here's an idea someone might like to try.

Picture a small POP email checker (maybe IMAP), that will look for a specific sender (your mobile maybe) and will execute predefined commands depending on the subject of the email. You could even have it check the body of the mail for extra parameters.

The app would have a list of aliases that correspond to commands.

Play="C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe"

So an email with
Subject: Play
with a Body of "myplaylist.wpl"

would run "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" "myplaylist.wpl"

Just an example I'm sure some of you could come up with more useful or more geeky examples Wink

Already existing software you could take a look at:
GetByMail
ControlPC  (could not find a link, but have an old setup file)

Another possible piece of software with less options:
TweetMyPC

Isn't this what your average script kiddy is trying to achieve, sending you email with a link of a pretty/nude girl? embarassed
