Get SMS for Urgent Confidential Emails
(Problem: Need immediate notification via SMS of confidential emails; yet didn't want the actual confidential email to be forwarded to another service.)

Here's the solution I found.

1. Setup User Filters (on CPanel) on webserver to pipe specific emails based on subject line or from header to be piped to a PHP script server-side. (Advantage is I don't have to have a client running to make this work.) The filter also adds the email to my inbox so I can go an read it later.
2. Create a PHP script server-side with a CHMOD of 775 and the proper execution path in the top line.
3. The PHP script simply sends a email to IFTTT (a free online service at iftttt.com) The script tag's the email header as coming from my account that is registered with IFTTT.
4. Setup IFTTT customer recipe. If trigger@ifttt.com gets an email from myname@mydomain.com it will send me an SMS with the subject line of the email.
(Since the emails deal with confidential info I just have a hardcoded subject like in my PHP script that tells me I have an email of this nature in my infbox.)

That's it... DONE!!!
