OK, I've been up all night working on another project and am not thinking straight (but when am I ever :-) so I'm having trouble with the simple. I'll ask my Q very open-ended. Here's what I want my app to do:

     Open Outlook (if it is not currently open)
     Connect to the internet if not already connected
     Refresh Outlook (send/receive)
     Disconnect when done (Mail delivery complete)
     Repeate after X time.

I want to set up a timer to do this but I am having a difficult time finding the methods in Outlook to accomplish the connection and refresh. How bout I go get some more coffee and let you all think about it.

Thanks in advance!
