windows xp home edition. I need to cause a dial up to my ISP from a rexx program. any idea how I can do this. My need is to send e-mails automatically from my rexx program using Tech-Pro sendmail, but the ISP connection must be up and running first. All help greatfully received.

Tks for spotting me Johnyrocker. The connection is standard SMTP from Windows XP Home Edition. I use the system supplied dialer to dial when I go for e-mail. If I could get the same dialer to run from my REXX program it would be great. I just found RASDIAL. Could I use this?
