Scripts for Outlook Express Macintosh Edition

Download oescripts.sit

Description

These two AppleScript scripts are for use with the Microsoft Outlook Express e-mail client, for saving game records sent in the body of e-mail messages by go servers (as IGS and NNGS do).

To use: in Outlook Express, select the e-mailed game records, then choose "Save SGF Files ..." or "Save SGF Files As ..." from the script icon (scripts) menu.

On the go servers, use the sgf command to see what SGF files are available, and the mail me command to e-mail an SGF file to your registered e-mail address. If you want to receive game records of all your games, use the toggle automail command. Use help sgf, help mail, and help automail on the go servers for more information.

The GNU General Public License; applies to both programs.

Outlook Express creates its own scripts folder, Script Menu Items, inside its installation folder. If you use OSA Menu, I suggest that you:

This way both Outlook Express and OSA Menu will refer to the same folder.

I have only tested these programs on my system, MacOS 8.6, with Outlook Express 4.5 and 5.0. If you have any trouble running them, find (fix?) any bugs, or add any features, please contact me.
