in reply to is it possible to use Perl to process Outlook emails?

I use Net::IMAP::Simple to do stuff with emails on our Exchange server.

When will this run? Is this something yuu want to run yourself, something you want to run periodically on it's own (like once a day, even when you're out sick), or something you want to process each email as it arrives? Is this something you're going to run on your desktop* or on a server somewhere?

*I'm defining "server" is a computer you don't turn off and "desktop" as one that you do turn off.

I usually have stuff like this run on a server with cron in unix or Scheduled Tasks in windows.

[ambrus]: 1nickg: obviously the gamers don't know. but anyway, I need the whole room backlit, because watching a monitor in a dark room (like many people do) is tiring for my eyes, even more so than doing it in a lit room.
[1nickt]: ambrus I agree. I suspect one's eyes are always trying to adjust across the boundary between very bright and very dark ... like a camera's autofocus struggling to choose the target.
