Behind a firewall eh? ;)
Have a look at procmail. It should do all you want, and then some.
You'd need to grab mail to your myth box (either accepting them
directly as an smtp server, or via some other server), and filter it
through procmail. Write some recipes, and chuck them on the wiki
perhaps. How complex did you have in mind? Just a few basic commands
like "record show", or a full blown interface? It might be possible to
emulate the command line interface via email, but that would be a lot
of emails... your sysadmins might get suspicious... but there's no
technical reason why not.
