in reply to Perl and Eudora

You could write a wrapper script, e.g.,

system("D:/EudoraPro/Eudora.exe"); copy($_,'z:/mail_test') foreach glob 'D:/EudoraPro/*.mbx'; copy($_,'z:/mail_test') foreach glob 'D:/EudoraPro/*.toc';

Then, create a shortcut for the command, perl.exe and use THAT for starting Eudora.

    That doesn't work. The files get copied and everything but Eudora is not starting.
      If your on windows 2000 or Xp you can add your back up code as a scheduled task, will that work for you?
        I am running Windows 98 and I am using the Scheduler it provides. If it comes down to it I can use that but I'd like to back up everything after every Eudora use.
