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!!

httpclient may be handling the cookie passing for you.
