Please help I'm stuck!! I need to setup an automatic e-mail system which will open specific e-mails from a Internet site subscription  page, retrieve the e-mail address and send out a set e-mail (template).  A Visual Basic Script to do this would help LOADS.  THANKS.

erm you can do this in Outlook 98 just with the rules.
Set it up so that it searths the email for a specfic word (or from a specfic address, or even all emails!) and reply to it if it using a set email.
Select tools rules wizard (inbox assisant if your using outlook 97)and have a look at the rules in there, Outlook 98 is more powerful.

phone 232 246300
state_province=Co. Down
zip_postal=BT10 4JA
fax 232 246200
