Mail and SMS

Hi friends,
I have a question related to UNIX mail issue. Let me explain the scenario. I am working in HP UNIX system and we are having some shell scripts those are already scheduled. Whenever the scripts are failed to run. I got an auto generated mail from UNIX administrator. To read the mail I need to login to the UNIX system. No I want that I need to forward that mail to my webmail id and some intimation to my mobile as SMS about the mail. The mail server is already configured to the UNIX system. My question is,

[My major problem is, once if I logged in to the system, and then only I came to know that I got the mail .Due to this I need to monitoring the system in the regular basis[24*7] . It consuming huge time]

1. Is it possible to write the script for forwarding the mail and for sending SMS to intimate that i got the mail? Can anyone give me sample code for script file?

Please help me out................

Thanks in advance Smilie

You should consider an email to sms gateway. I use TextMagic for alerting when monitoring a server.
