Just a design note: you'll want a password character, rather than displaying the password as it's typed...

the password character is "G" ;)

From the screenshot, I just thought he put it in for the heck of it.

I don't have a gmail account but I just want to give you credit for using the .net framework. It's good to see someone embrace it.

Yeh, I love .net. It has so many built in features in the runtime... which makes it 20meg, which is a definate downer

Well, if you don't already have it installed and have > dialup then there's really no excuse. You're gonna have to get it sooner or later! Luckily longhorn will come bundled with it, as does 2003.

Obviously, you're not downloading the framework just for that one program, and in the future, .NET is going to be included with the OS. Don't be an idiot.

It's the lamest complaint ever and I've heard it too often. At one time you had to install vb6 runtimes because they weren't included. As time passes, .net is becoming more and more prominant in the programming community and we should embrace it for it's power. I, as a vb programmer, am very happy with vb .net and would never think of going back jsu tto shut someone up about the framework.

vb6 runtimes weren't as huge.
MFC is good enough for me. small, fast, efficient

You have to realize, though, that the .net framework encompasses many, many languages not just VB.

Anyone getting this error, it is most likely a bug in my string manipulation code reading the email messages from the google arrays.

Would you be able to post a screenshot of your gmail mailbox? I'll post 0.2 which will include better error handling on those message arrays to find out what is causing the problem
