Outside IP address

Talking of e-mails, I'd like to write a script, so when I load my PC, it 
sends an e-mail to an address with the output of ifconfig.

Is this possible? if so, how would I do it?

You can send yourself an email, and look at all of the header
information which should have the ip address from it originated.
