Webmin to send daily df -h then email alerts

    First time webmin user here, i love it so far.  I'm hoping there's a way to accomplish two things with it also, but that I just dont know how.
    1) I'd like it to email me every morning essentially the info shown in a "df -h" as a server disk space overview
    2) I'd like it to monitor the disk space on each volume of server, and alert me when free space is less than a certain percentage

    If it can do that, can someone tell me specifically how to set it up?  I couldnt figure out #1 on my own, I tried #2 on my own, but never got an email even though I know the condition was met, and the text turned red in webmin.

    You could setup a cron job to run whatever commands you like and send output to a file.  There are numerous perl and php modules to send email either with your file copied to the body or as an attachment.

    ok, so there's no way to do it through webmin then.  Thought maybe there might be since it appeared to have alerting.
