If connection fails, return error message and exit. 2) Scan local machine for one/any/each of the e-mail clients listed in the platform section. Present user with "found" clients, or return "no valid clients found" error. If client(s) are found, upon selection by user, program must a) create a folder in the email database (e.g. junk mail) b) read existing pop mail account/settings from local clients (e.g. outlook express) (if there are any) c) create filter/rule for a "beings with XYZ" pattern and set rule to move all matching mail to the new folder created in step a. d) add an icon/toolbar entry to the selected client that launches a given application. 3) connect to secure server, read and parse xml document. present settings as shown in the document in a standard text field(s) to end user. upon modification/addition of data to text fields and submission by user, send data to secure web site using post method. read/parse response in xml format, display response to end user. there are 3 seperate sections of the application that will have this same behavior with minor changes in the type of data that will be read/sent. 4) similar to function 3 but display some of the data in pie/bar/table format given use choice. 5) An attactive gui is very important.
