Position report on web pages via emails?

Hi
we have an iridium 9555 and Id like to know if theres a way to send a simple email to plot a position on a web page map so show the location. I would like to be able to transmit a position report via email and have it appear on a google earth type map on our blog page, or a linked page. Im sure its possible, I just don't know how

Monte, check out shiptrak.org. We've been posting to it for years from our winlink email.

Thanks Greg. I'm having trouble getting that to work, but it looks like it might be a solution. I think it would be easier with a win link account which we don't have.

Re: Position report on web pages via emails?

Thanks again, I have managed to make it work. Created an account with Yotreps, emailed a position report and now it appears on the shiptrak site. Nice one.
ShipTrak v4.0
The position reporting was a bit tricky, but basically you can email to
yotreps@pangolin.co.nz the following:
nothing in the subject line
the following in plain text in the body of the email
