Ok got it now from http://wiki.overbyte.be/wiki/index.php/ICS_Download.
The ssl demo now works OK with gmail, just what I needed. Thank you for your help. Now I can work through the demo code to put in the error handling as you suggest and also see how much I can remove to get just the core functionality and minimum property seting needed to simply automatically send a emailed newletter. (I originally had ver 8 from http://www.overbyte.be/frame_index.html?redirTo=/products/ics.html butt he V8 download from there seemed to create a a different folder structure so I used your link.) BTW I didn't appreciate you were one of the developers! Thank you for taking the time, no better person to ask!
