I'll start with an example .. Let's assume that i want to code a program that will do the following tasks..
At 6:00 a.m, it will open Firefox, Go to Gmail, type in my username and password and once the mail is open, it will hit compose mail and then send an email to an email address of my choice.

I know that some email providers can do that but i'm just giving an example. Which programming language(s) is used to program such a program or a bot ? and any ideas of where i know more about these type of programs ?

I'm new to these forums and i didn't know where to post this, so if this isn't the appropriate forum, please be patient with me

I think the easiest thing to do is to use AutoIt3.

I think you can use Delphi 7 or higher to achieve this task.

Why would you want to load FF, type in the username/pass, compose an email? Why not just compose an email as a string and send it to the gmail SMTP server? It is senseless, IMO, to actually "type" the information onto an application when it can all be done silently.

I was wondering the same thing. Moreover, it is probably easier to do it silently, then to load FireFox, type in the username/password, then compose the email.

Well, that was just an example to simplify my question which is how to automate a process or stuff that we do repeatedly.
But anyways .. could you explain more about how to compose an email as a string and send it over to an email server ?

The process will depend somewhat on the language you choose to implement it in, but it's really the same logic as composing the email in ThunderBird and having it connect to the gmail server.
