You are on the wrong track if your programming model is synchronous. ICS is
asynchronous, non blocking by design. You' d better design your application
using asynchronous model. You'll learn that it is easy and give very good
performance. And you have multitasking without resorting to multithreading.

The components will not touch the message itself.

Look better :-)
The component is there in OverybteIcsHttpProt.pas.
Actually V6 has all V5 components but less demos (you can easily port V5
demos to V6 demos as the changes in the components are almost internal).

The unit have been renamed (prefixed by OverbyteIcs) but the components have
same class name properties and events.

Hope so !
