I don't think you do this. Not a good idea to have your password in a standard location. You just want to have rebol as a client, always ready to read email, not as a cgi, right? Anton.

no I want to send email through rebol. unfortunately my email account needs to have my password, also a username of name\domain instead of [name--domain]. which rebol quits on name\

The set-net function does not directly support this option; however, one can add a line to the user.r file or script which directly inserts the password into the pop protocol: system/schemes/pop/pass: "my-password" Note that this does represent some security risk, so this information should only be accessible to the script, and not to a web browser. Also note that the username name can also be set as such: system/schemes/pop/user: "my-user-name" and then mail read via: mail-data: read pop://pop3.mydomain.dom Hope this helps. --Scott Jones
