Hi all. I'm looking for an extension that will create an email and send it upon status update. Let's call it shipments eTrack. When we ship a customer order, we want him to get shipment status updates from the carrier. Each carrier has its own method to start sending email updates to an email ID, but they all share the same logic. Below is the text copied from DHL eTrack page (which is really most important for us now):

How do I use DHL eTrack?
Create an email and enter your waybill number(s) in the contents--up to 50 at a time. If you've received an email containing the waybill number you want to track, forward it to DHL and our system will automatically find it within the text and send you a reply.
Address the email to track@dhl.com. To send the results to other people, enter their email addresses in the CC field.
Send the message and receive the results via return email within seconds.

All we need to do, is create an email template for each individual shipping company and each status. We already have this setup on our shop. You can have a look at it. We will need in the new module to edit the:

Recipient address.
Sender address.
Subject.
Content.
CC address

We will need the new module to read the shipping variables and the user variables.
