Im not exactly sure what you ment by sending a lot of data, so ill try to cover all the bases...

if by a lot of data you mean many variables then simply add more poststrings.add lines like so:
[code]
try
    PostStrings.Add('UserName=hello');
    PostStrings.Add('Password=world');
    PostStrings.Add('var1=foo');
    PostStrings.Add('var2=bar');
    PostStrings.Add('var3=blah1');
    PostStrings.Add('var4=blah2');
    ResultString := IdHTTP1.Post('http://www.test.com/login.php', PostStrings);
    <snip>
[/code]

If a lot of means a particularly large variable then you should be able to send it the same way you send the small ones as such:
[code]
try
    PostStrings.Add('UserName=reallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallylongusername');
    PostStrings.Add('Password=world');
    ResultString := IdHTTP1.Post('http://www.test.com/login.php', PostStrings);
    <snip>
[/code]

If you just mean being able to send the value of a variable then you can do the following:
[code]
var
  ResultString,
  UserNameString,
  PasswordString : string;
  PostStrings: TStringList;
<snip>
try
    PostStrings.Add('UserName='+UserNameString);
    PostStrings.Add('Password='+PasswordString);
    ResultString := IdHTTP1.Post('http://www.test.com/login.php', PostStrings);
    <snip>
[/code]

if one record is:
----- one record-------
name=some name
surname=same surname
date=reg date
info1= some information
info2= some information
...
info20= some information
---------------------
and I need to send about 100 this records with various data WITH ONE POST...

i would have to say that as far as i know that cannot be done, at least not cleanly anyway...

you could try doing it by creating a record object like so...
type
  ARecord = record
    name,
    surname,
    info1,
    info2,
    ...
    info20 : string;
    regdate : tdatetime;
  end;
var
  allrecords : array of ARecord;
  i : integer;

Then the posting would go something like this...
for i := 0 to allrecords.high do begin
  poststrings.add('Record'+inttostr(i)+'='+allrecords[i]
end;
ResultString := IdHTTP1.Post('http://www.test.com/login.php', PostStrings);

The script for handling this data would have to be reworked to be able to handle any amount of variables in the form of Recordx where x represents the record number... It would also have to be able to parse out each record in order to get at its constituent parts, but that shouldnt be too hard...

that is the best i can think of for sending it in a single posting... out of curiosity why must it only use one post? The program could be much cleaner if each record could have its own post.
