I have my pi set up to text my phone (XXXXXXXX@vtext.com) through a google account when the CPU reaches or exceeds 45 degrees Celsius. I would like to be able to message back to the account and have the pi execute various scripts based on the content of the message. For instance, I may type "Put the fan on high." and it will execute a script that raises the fan speed. Or if the fan is already on high, I would like to be able to type "Shutdown." and have the pi shutdown. I have the pi checking the account via POP, the only problem is it shuts down every time no matter what I type, I can't figure this one out. This is way beyond my python knowledge.
