[REBOL] Anyone ever done this?

From: edanaii::cox::net at: 10-Aug-2002 7:01

All, I've written an email program that connects to a mailbox and then processes the mail based on a defined set of rules. It matches the Subject line of the email, then performs a specified action based on that match. Next, I created a "Rule" whose specified action was to execute the text body of the email. Then I sent it an email with an embedded REBOL program. It executed it without problems. Pretty damn cool! :) The implication for me is that I can actually control my email program through email. I can twist it and tweak it as needed remotely. Has anyone ever done anything similar with REBOL?
