Automatically Print Emails


I would like an application that will automatically check my GMail account (via POP3 or IMAP or something), and automatically print the EMails out. I would like it to print the graphics too. Any ideas of how I could do this for free in Linux? The machine is running a stripped down command line version debain etch.

Thanks!

Justin

There is no tool I know of that does that by default but you could accomplish it via a few different methods curl+scripting, fetchmail+procmail, regardless of what method you use you'll probably need to use something to convert the graphics before printing.

Thanks rweaver. I've read about fetchmail and procmail before, but never used them. I have ghostscript installed on the machine already. Actually I have a php script on a web server where if I upload a PDF to it, it will print as soon as the upload has finished. So here is what I think I need...

fetchmail
procmail to execute a script to upload to my php script

Any tips? I don't know how to use fetchmail or procmail. Does any one know of some good how-tos that I should follow?

Thanks a lot!
