Subject Re: Login to mail.yahoo.com or gmail.com with HttpClient
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2008 17:52:22 GMT

I have written such a program that logs into those and other sites like 
them.  I can't share the code as I no longer work for the company that 
owns it.  But I can point you to the resources I used.

First, a packet analyzer, like wireshark is useful for detecting your 
posts match that of a browser.
This opensource project gave some great inspiration also:
Mr. Postman - http://mrpostman.sourceforge.net

That should help get you started.
