I have a 750 running CACkO 1.23 the question is how do I schedule email pulls with a blue tooth dial up phone setup (connection is already working). I use QTmail as a mail client, and everything works manually, but I would like to setup a scheduled connect, pull email, disconnect so I can pick up email every 1/2 an hour or so.

Is this doable?

Maybe a shell script would do it? Something like:

<connect command>
<get mail command>
<disconnect command>
sleep 1800

Probably insanely sloppy, but it could work, assuming you can get mail without opening the client or the client is always open and the phone is always in range, otherwise you'll miss a cycle.

I doubt you can do it with qtmail, which is pretty much GUI-based. My guess is you'd have to write some qtopia routine to do it, not an easy thing to learn.

Check out the command-line based email clients like mutt and pine. There are some great threads here discussing them. I use tkcMail myself which I found more flexible without being as complex as mutt or pine seem to me to be.
