  4. Step 1 - Record Events

    The first step of this process is to start "Recording" events, whereby a browser will be spawned for the user to go to the website which they want mailed. Once the desired page has loaded, the user should close the browser.

  6. Step 2 - Save the XML Communication Transcript

    Once the browser window is closed, the application stores the communication events as XML (as shown below). The user will need to save the XML file as it will be used in the scheduler process.

  10. The WebPager Command Line Utility

    The WebPager is a separate executable ("WebPager.exe") that takes as its argument an email address and an XML communication file. What the WebPager does is replay the communication events stored in the XML file to retrieve the latest web page. Once that is done, it emails the user specified in the command line argument.

    As such, one can setup a Scheduled Task running this executable to schedule the deliver of web pages to your inbox.
