    Hey guys...I have an old PC at my cabin that is connected via dialup (yuck, I know.) Nonetheless, it has a report-generating program that populates a file once very hour or so. I need a way to email said file to my main home each hour. How can I get the old PC to automatically send me the newest version of the file on a regularly scheduled basis? BTW, its running XPP. If my cabin weren't 6 hours away, it wouldn't be a problem!

    I'm not sure there are any e-mail clients sophisticated enough to open a message, fill in the "to" field, add an attachment and send. However, you could set something up like that for FTP. There are many programs out there that would do scheduled transfers, you would just need to setup a server at your house or another location you would be able to save the files to.
