Hey all. I've just finished making a new program called PlayMailer for Windows 7/XP/Vista, which automates playing old DOS turn based strategy games by email. It makes setting up new games and loading and saving games super easy and has some features like in-game chat.

Basically how it works:- you put in your email account details, create a player list, and then PlayMailer will launch your game, configure all the players within the game (by automatically moving the mouse around and clicking on stuff) and load your turn. When you've finished your turn, you press a hotkey, and PlayMailer automatically saves your game and sends the save file to the next person, who receives a notification message and can launch their turn with a button press. Here's the website, with the program, some screenshots and some about info.

It only supports 3 games at the moment: Warlords 1, Master of Orion II and Chess Titans (Windows 7/Vista chess program)

but I plan to add one new game per week hopefully.
