 E-mail as a System Console

Linux Journal tells us how to issue shell commands using email.

"Create an e-mail-based console application that let's you execute commands and return results via e-mail. If you're stuck with only web access, get a web e-mail account somewhere and use it to send commands over e-mail to your system at home. The e-mail console is a nice way to communicate with your system when normal communications (Telnet, ssh, FTP, what-have-you) are not available."
