Does anyone know the Delphi OLE code to write so that a user can check their Microsoft  Excange and find out if there is any mail for them .  and if so to show it to them.  ie boot up Microsoft Exchange if there is new mail.

the WinExecute( ) is not good enough i require some kind of OLE to do this, presumably with the Delphi OLE components.

I assume that you have written your own app   Why not add a POP client component to your app (From the Internet page of your pallet?  Then, you can check you own mail when you want without firing up exchange.  

Another approach would be to use 'OLE Automation' using your app as an automation controller (not linking or embeding).

Hope this helps.

Well it certainly gives me some ideas to folow.

I will increase the points for this question, and see if anyone has an actual solution / code,  using POP3 or OLE Automation or whatever.

thanks for your help
