Controling my Mac through email

Hey guys, I'm new here.
What I want is to be on the move and send my Mac an email and have it perform a task. Maybe Automator will be watching Mail and if it sees a certain command it will start playing music, open an application or pretty much anything I want. Is this possible? Maybe it's not an email, but a different application with a control app on my iPhone.
In another forum someone suggested VNC, but I want to be able to do things when I'm on the train or at the airport, etc...
