Again, thanks for the reply.
Well I looked at the suggested reference, but only programming in Perl for a couple of weeks now, it just didn't make sense. I've had 18 years of proramming in Cobol on mainframes and converting to Perl is just fantastic. I've stumbled through generating e-mails and SMS messages OK. I've even been able to look up entries in an access datbase, mostly using code which I have cribbed from this website.
I just can't figure out where to start on evaluating the folders collection, so if anyone could point me in the right direction I would be most grateful. If I can get them evaluated, then presumably it might give me a clue as to what my target folder is called. Then I can get on with writing the entries I have already extracted, back into that folder.

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
