Haha, nice, using email. I love how clever and simple is this idea.

I also look through my own blog to remind myself of commands or information. I use vimwiki quite a bit, and combined with git and gollum I now have a simple online copy of my own wiki I can easily access from any browser.

I love the email idea!
It would be cool to find a way to expose it, say via gopher

set up the root index to the Maildir :)

That's smart :)
I think I'll want to trim the headers though ^^

A cron job calling a script to remove unwanted headers and copy body to an auto index directory ?

That's what I had in mind yeah. Another solution could be a sieve script in dovecot, but this sound much more complex and specific...

Most mail server allow you to pipe incoming envelopes to a script in aliases file.
i.e. on openbsd smtpd, you can write in /etc/mail/aliases something like
Code:
toto: |/path/to/the/script

The envelope is like a file passed as argument ($1)

That's a good way to go! You will have to manually push the mails to your maildir if you want to keep them. But that is something I can live with :)
You just reinvented microblogging dude!
