Thanks Pete.

I've done this in the past, running an online game that generated software
codes (a Rev stack generated a unique serial number based on an incoming
email rule).  It's a bit fragile, but there is a benefit of having all your
processing technologies (email rules, LiveCode stacks, etc) local.

In fact, it just occurred to me I have a few spare computers here so I could
have a system devoted solely to order processing.  Thanks for jogging my
thinking about this option.  Will still investigate PHP scripts as well.
