I currently have a program that worked up until there has been a change in the protocol the hosting company and I can not get the program to send me the automated email I need which is a crucial part of the program notifying me that a change has been made. I need ssl mail for the mail code so there is no issue with sending the automated email to me:

The basic aim of the program is to look up a file online and check for changes in the file for a particular field. If there has been a change in the file I need an automated email sent to an email address of my choice. If there has not been a change in the file for the field we require, then repeat the process again in one minute(variable) intervals

I want the program to start-up with windows and give the computer enough time to gain an internet connection. I want the program to be able to run via Windows xp and if possible windows 7

The program needs to look up a particular URL(for example http://www.ofcom.org.uk/static/numbering/s8.xls) online that links to a spreadsheet and then look at the contents of a excel spreadsheet file and then read the contents of the file.
The program then needs to filter the content by lines so the relative information we need are there for the program as we only need a selection of the data to be looked at and examined as the contents change on a daily basis but we are only looking for one particular fields entry that matters to us.

Depending on the amount of lines, the hash value and templines would change, if any additions to the file had been made.
If the temp lines is the same, take no further action and keep repeating the process. I think automatic cache removing will be necessary as this hinders the program after doing the same process repeatedly.

If the URL is downloaded and the templine’s of the particular download has increased, then the next pat of the program will be send an automated email to a particular destination which needs to be a variable. I need to be able to specify an email address to send the email from with the header and contents of the email variable.

Also automatic pc reset will be needed as the pc usually can’t take the system completely redoing the same thing every minute. Either an external computer restart program can be used no problem.

Variables needed in the program are as follows:

Email address sending the email
Delay in between the duration of each rotation of the program cycle if nothing is found to be different in the contents of the file
Email addresses of who the email as are going to including a cc field
Content of the email and its header(usually just a text file)
Variable telling program what to filter(eg all entries in the document that relate to company “08 numbers ltd” would reveal 5 entries in the table in the document example I have given.)
