I am looking for something that I can use to automatically download my email at a set time each day, using Eudora.  I want it to login to my ISP, launch Eudora, and get my mail. Has anybody done this before, or have any tips.

I was thinking of using the windows API to dial my ISP connection (but I don't know how). and then launching Eudora and using send keys to get Eudora to download.  Eudora doesn't have any API's I know about.

Doesn't Eudora support this on their own?

If not, go to a site like Tucows - http://tucows.mcp.com/checkers95.html - and check out their freeware / shareware email checking programs. I think many of them will do what you want.

Sorry it took me a while to award the points.  I didn't even think of checking out Tucows.  Thanks.  I found some good apps there.
