Look at the aliases file used by Mailman.  You will see a perfect
example of a program being triggered by an email.

There are also several write-ups of this in the archives.  The ones I
did are pretty far back in there - at least over a year ago if not two.

BTW: It is *very* poor netiquette to hijack someone else's topic to ask
a totally unrelated question.  Use your own subject in a new mail.
