Yes, a couple people have attempted something like this. You might want to look at this thread and see what you can do. You'll need the beta.

I'm using getmail for a small project I've been working on the the last several months. It's a great CMDline tool. Zip'ed version below

getmail.zip

Awesome thanks for all the help!

I was able to send and recive EMAIL with all your help from regular smtp/pop servers.

However there is one "but" here if smtp server requires SSL connection (read gmail.com) then nothing works. Even CDO.Message with SSL = true doesn't work.

I'm trying a different approach here to use Outlook express instead and control it with AutoIt. The problem here though is I don't have a DLL or a COM object that can drive the UI. Did anyone write a DLL that would take ClassIds and Names of UI elements from UISpy and send messages to them or I'm going to have to write my own?

I'm writing a formmail driven script that will (hopefully) use something like GetMail. I'll let you all know how it goes.
