Getting past initial login page using httpclient

I'm using httpclient to log into my mail.ru web-mail account and so far, so good.  I can get past the login screen no problem and it returns the inbox page to me displaying my folders and the number of messages in each.  I would like to go to my inbox and parse the contents there for certain people.  I can do the parsing myself, but I'm 100% unsure how to navigate to that page while maintaining my current login.

I assume this is to be done using cookies???

Thanks,
David

Depends on how the session is maintained, most probably the session id is passed as a cookie.

Strange, while I was waiting for you to check out this question, I just added another post method to the inbox directory after posting the initial login and it goes there no problem.  I didn't have to handle any sessionids in a cookie or anything.  Hmmmm  Well good anyways and you'll get the points.  You always help out so you're more than deserving.  

Thanks again objects!!
