I think this is what you're after? Set up a forwarder that does
[robot--yourdomain--com] -> |/home/you/robot.r
Now robot.r will be invoked whenever an email is sent to
[robot--yourdomain--com] with the email passed in via stdin
All you then need to do is write the robot.r script to do something like:
buffer: make string! 15000
read-io system/ports/input buffer 15000
... parse buffer, it's a full email (inc header) I can send an eg if
I'm in the middle of writing one of these for my site, and a /zine
