I just noticed that my last post was not easy to read
I´ve used the following shell command to redirect to a file instead of to /dev/null
/users/matthias/downloads/temp/MailHog > /users/matthias/downloads/temp/hubbabubba.txt 2>&1 &
My script looked like this
put "/users/matthias/downloads/temp/MailHog > /users/matthias/downloads/temp/hubbabubba.txt 2>&1 &" into tShell
answer URL "file:/users/matthias/downloads/temp/hubbabubba.txt"
The answer dialog showed up immediately after executing the shell and it contained the redirected stdout data.
> filename redirects the stdout to a file
2 > &1 redirects stderr to stdout, which in my case is redirected to file hubbabubba.txt
& puts the command in the background
