Prior to purchasing the iPhoneBoredomKiller, I needed a way to get important emails sent to my phone.

So, I whipped up a quick script to do just that.

IMAP2SMS will log into an IMAP account (like GMail) and look for unread, unflagged emails. When found, it strips all the HTML out, flags it (so it won’t send you the same message twice) and delivers it to your cellphone.

Set this up using a cron job, to run every 10 minutes or so.

Naturally, SMS charges still exist, so be wary if you have a cap on your SMS’s per month.
