Hello just wondering if there is a way I can get ARC to tell me when I have new email
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
I like and respect you, but your assertions about how computers in general work, and security in particular are ill-informed.
When I dealt with it I was living with a web security msn agent we both used it and learned about its problems at the same time needless to say we did not use it for long
I hope you find solutions but I am unable to help further I'm afraid.
That being said, there are plenty of good email clients, particularly if your email provider supports IMAP.
Thank you all for trying to help
and im sorry if im leery about programs and stuff that bit me in the past
I did say right at the start that I don't use gmail and why but ppl kept harping on me about it
my other posts was about new feature request and there was no arguing at all just a discussion about the features and how they would work is all
I even reread them to see the arguments and there was none :S
so im sorry if I "frustrated" you or anyone
It will not happen again
please delete this thread
I don't mean this to come across in the wrong way and I mean no disrespect by it at all but I genuinely feel that you don't really know as much as you think you know and that is a recipe for disaster. I used to work with a woman like that and the problems she would have were all down to her thinking she knew what she was doing, from bad practice, outdated information or from a general lack of knowledge and the refusal to accept that.
Take this topic for instance, there have been 3 or 4 solutions posted which would work with a little bit of time spent on them and no updates required to ARC or no apps written to interact with ARC however you have dismissed all of them based on outdated software issues or a general lack of knowledge or incorrect assumptions.
Let's not end up with another situation where a user refuses to accept advice and suggestions due to lack of up to date knowledge, we are all on the same side after all
im going to bed
good night or good morning or good day whatever it may be where you all are
I will post again after my get my ez-b v4
and thank you all again for trying to help this old wolf
I would use this code for email, but you need to tweak it to connect to mail instead of weather.
for mail, just search for pop3 Hotmail, .net
i found one for gmail here
you can likely change some code around to connect to hotmail instead of gmail.
As far as your privacy /security statement:
Both hotmail, Gmail (yahoo and others) all funnel your data to government agencies (NSA, IAO.. Etc) . Microsoft (hotmail) actually pioneered this.
All that data is available to contractors who are not govt employees.
For hackers who don't have access to a series of quantum computers at their disposal, you would be safe with gmail or hotmail. (in the past ive seen hotmail breached very often). Furthermore, you can set up settings to only access your email with dual verification, and in some places restrict which ip addresses to allow access.
With that being said, you will need a copy of visual studio to get this running. the idea would be to run a program on your computer which grabs notifications. If a notification is obtained, use the script from the first link, to send to ARC as a speak command.
Hope that helps
Please post any suggestions you might have here... thank you.
I wrote it specifically for this one request and only tested it with hotmail. I dont use it, but did test it for a couple of days. It could definitely be expanded upon.
