Hi,

I have been using RS for a few months now, and like how it works. However one annoying thing is having to click all those links in the hundreds of emails I get after a submission.

I have made a program that automatically scans my inbox for emails with specific subjects and then "clicks" the links in each mail following the rules I give. This works because most of the tgp scripts follow the same template for their email receipts.

How many of you are interested in a program like this ? Currently the program scans for emails by the "free x3 tgp script" and the Germes Brownie scripts. I will soon include a feature that automatically deletes the email, after the confirmation link has been auto-clicked.

Btw: This tool only works with MS Outlook 97, 2000 & XP

Looks nice, but 50$ is a bit much. I was planning on making mine free or maybe 10$ or similar. Charging 50$ for a simple piece of code is a bit steep, dont you think ?

Henry,

One suggestion, why do you scan e-mails based on subject before scanning the actual content? Sounds a bit unneccessary to me. Why not scan each mail for URLs and then check these for strings that should and shouldn't (shouldn't because some URLs for example contain the word confirm, but also contain del for deletion of listing) and than click these? If you do this right your auto confirm software will work for practically any confirmation e-mail.

MrNice: Thats not a bad idea, although if the program has to "read" every email completely, then it will be a lot slower.

My program works this way: Since most of the popular tgp scripts use the exact same template for their emails, I know exactly what text string to search for to make sure that my program has found the confirmation link and not some other sponsor program link etc. My program then spawns a IE browser window and loads the url automatically. When the page has been loaded, the browser window closes again. I find this to be the most exact "emulation" of manual confirmation.

You manually open a hundred browser Windows!?

Hmm... I find that quite unneccessary, you can emulate the webbrowser quite well by passing the IE UserAgent header. Sure it will be slower than looking at the subject and only read those mails. But then again, it will be more accurate and it will be a lot faster than having to open and close the IE browser for every link. And if you use lets say 10 threads it will be be quite fast.

At least this is the way I am writing my auto-confirm function. Which as noted in another thread will be available for free as addition to the standard functions in a tool.

And if you check each URL using proper methods you can be quite sure no sponsor program will be clicked by accident.

Henry:
You should make a lot more than $10 per day when you're using RS. TGP Confirm is a quality tool that I spent a lot of time on, and it's definitely worth the $50. It saves you 3 hours per day of clicking links, that alone is worth over $50 already

3 Hours a day?

I spend maybe 20-30 minutes

How many galleries are you talking about submitting a day?
