There are a million shell scripts on the internet to handle ssh connections, google one

It's probably easier if you have the script exit with a code, say the % of the disk that's filled up on the remote host and then just write it to a file on your desktop.

Yup, if you want on site email.
A couple of questions.
Do you (or your company) have your own domain?
Is it hosted (the companies internet or web server isn't in the building with you, it's on a paid for site)
Do they offer email as part of the hosting package? Many companies do.
Did we get the other problem resolved? It's best to try to set clear goals and then accomplish them in sequence rather than doing part of this and then part of that.

I just want to configure sendmail because on my linux server there is vpn connection and i want to know when this vpn space is 80% full then i get email to my private email account,

I have written the script for checking the space and everything, just need to know how to configure email that i can send to my private domain email account.

yes i have my own domain, and mail server.
