Hi guys,

Just wondering if someone here could help me with something.

I'm a member of a public online forum (authentication required). The site has no real RSS feed. I subscribe to some of their threads and they email me whenever there's an update on the thread (or sometimes a specific keyword).

However, when I get the email, it's just a link to the actual forum and there's no text I can read from within the email.

I was hoping to get an application that could check for these incoming emails, automagically click through the links in them and extract the text from the thread/posts for me.

Don't know how much work is involved in this, so let me know your price or point me in the direction of a free product that can do this?

Cheers!

Hey Anthony thanks for your reply, what kind of info do you need? You can have a look here:
I may be able to help you with this, it really depends on how the accounts with the forum are setup. Happy to have a look if you give me some more information.
