Help with Email Alert
I am trying to send myself a text message when I receive new emails from spacific email accounts.

What I Know:
I found out that you don't need a SMS service to send text messages. Most phone providers allicate an email account with each phone number. e.g. ( When emails are sent to that address T-Mobile sends a text to 15551231234.

ISPConfig has a email forward option for all email accounts. This is great, but I don't want a copy of the email since the phone wont handle all the info in some emails and I want to keep it secure by not having my messages passed around. I just want a message that says "You have a new email at".

What I need to do:
I am looking for the function that handles the email forward for ispconfig or a config file that handles emails. Not sure if there is one in ISPConfig or Postfix. I would like to check the email that it is being sent to and if match then send an email to

Does anyone know where I can find the functions to add this code.

I have:
Ispconfig 2.2.24, Postfix, Dovecot, Fedora 9.
