comment Make WGET available without path
Why not just use /usr/custom/bin/wget (instead of just wget) in your script? Then it should work without problem, and for those using the script, it shouldn't matter how a command in it is called. Most editors have a search-replace function which could quickly do the change (and there is also sed).

comment Why does the X Window System use a server?
Unix and X evolved before PCs became so powerfull and cheap, in an eviroment where you typically had lots of rather simple terminals connected to one or a few more powerfull computers. This division was carried on with X: You had "terminals" - simple cheap computers with graphics-card - running just the X-server, and gathering input from mouse/keyboard and drawing the screen... The actual programs (the X-clients) on the other hand, ran on one or a few more powerfull computers - shared by all the users using the terminals. So splitting X in two parts (which could run seperate), made sense.

comment Interacting with webpage through script?
I should have worded myself more carefully... I'm really looking for a general way to automate this kind of interaction on a web-browser. Although I'll be using it first to move my mail; I'm after a general way to automate similar repetitive actions. Eg. hit a check-box, hit a radio-button, hit a push-button, wait, repeat -- not just for this particular web-mail system.

comment How to specify username and password in ftp command?
expect (a tcl/tk extension of sorts) is a program that's ideal for this sort of things - ie. wait for some prompt; give a reponse... wait for an answer; give a new response... expect wait for "ogin:" and send you username, then it wait for "assword:" and send your password.
