Live Hotmail 'New' button

Recommended Posts


Sorry for the noob query but I have trawled these pages and cannot find an updated example of how to compose a 'New' email in the latest version of Hotmail (Windows Live Hotmail).

Can anyone tell me if I would need to automate a click on the New button to compose a new email or can I get by by just going to the url that is called when the 'New' button is clicked?

I am able to get logged in but have spent 3 days playing with _IEGetObjById, _IEFormGetObjByName and _IEFormElementGetObjByName to try and get the value fo the New button but get

Warning from function _IEFormGetObjByName, $_IEStatus_NoMatch when using

$o_newform = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "aspnetForm")

I then intend to use the following to 'click' the New button -

$o_clknew = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_newform, "New")

_IEAction ($o_clknew, "click")

Am I making this harder than it needs to be? Any advice would be great. Hotmail seems to be completely different since its revamp, is this to cut down on automations?
