OK, this may be a bit more subtle than i had expected. I had omitted to mention that I am using the Windows CE (MIPS on a Packard bell EasyMate 800). When I do the same as above I get:- connecting to: ** Access Error: Cannot connect to ** Where: smtp-port: open [scheme: 'smtp] if email?
On the other hand if I run: pmail -to [justin--halls--brunel--ac--uk] I get the dial-up networking dialog box asking if I want to connect. I still need manual intervention at this stage of course. With your rebol setup as above do you stil need to click the 'connect' button in the DUN dialog box, or does it all work silently for you? Regards Justin
