		Hi,
=09
	Is there a possibility in ruby or with a ruby extension for
checking emails?
=09
	I'm thinking something like the following:
	- ruby accesses a site and after a button is pressed an email is
send to an address
	- ruby opens the mail handler (Outlook express / Thunderbird)
and waits that the email is downloaded
	- opens the email (the email can be identified by it's subject)
	- check if some text can be found in the email

I believe it will be easier if you choose to (and can) avoid
Outlook/Thunder and read the mails via Ruby itself.
Reading mails from a POP/IMAP server is quite easy.
(For POP3)
