|Automation Assistant for Microsoft Outlook 98 and Outlook Express. These programs do have automatic connect/collect/disconnect options, but enabling these means that, for dial-up users, the program attemps to connect to the internet every few minutes. Outlook Automator, when run, backs up your original settings, configures Outlook 98/Express to operate unattended, starts the program and waits for mail to be collected, then terminates the program, and restores your original settings -- without having to have Outlook's automation features enabled! Perfect for scheduling with System Agent / Task Scheduler!
