How to remotely shut down your PC via SMS!

Here’s a cool HOWTO on remotely shutting down your PC via SMS. This might come in handy for all you automators…

I recently read an article on lifehacker that explained how to shut down windows with a text message.
(http://lifehacker.com/software/remote-computing/shutdown-windows-with-a-text-message-172873.php)
Although I think this is a really cool idea, I don’t own microsoft outlook and I wanted to figure out a more portable way to go about setting up this project on my computer.

With an add-on and a few tweaks, it is possible configure this, with a portable copy of Mozilla Thunderbird.
This should take < 10 minutes to set up and configure.
