    Here's what I need:

    Clicks web link.
    Copies text e-mail on that page.
    Goes back.
    Clicks the next link down! (This is where I'm stuck at and I've tried everything)..

    Hmm any ideas? Sorry using a 2nd account from work, don't remember my password it's saved on my comp, lol. :eek:

    If you can help me figure this out, I may send $20-30 paypal your way... Depends on what my boss says.

    Could you make it scroll down X amount of pixels? If so, find out how high one row is.

    Tried that, every micro keeps ignoring the scroll since the next page refresh to the top.

    In imacros you have to use the {{!LOOP}} function to have it select the next link down. Can you post an example of your imacro code, so us so called experts can have a look at it.

    Set up a counter.. and count each link on the page.. and using the counter get all the links on the page. Then each run just pick one of the links on the page.. if nothing is left go to another page. and repeat

    You can do it with a mouse recorder such a Jibbit one.

    Put all URL in a text file.
    Copy / Paste in browser
    Grab your email if it is always at the same place.
    Paste it whereever you want.
    Delete the first URL of the list, and repeat.

    With the $20-30 you may invest a bit more in scrapebox which can grab emails from websites.

    if you can install java6 (I know Java7 is out but 6 is needed) then I would check into Sikuli. It is the best (as well as open source, and free) automation soft I have come across. Works on both Win and Nix, can do all you ask, and if you cannot erase info from a page once copied and pasted, you can use a move to plotting function (coordinates) to copy the next line without worries. It may take a little time to get the plotting right for a complete page of uneditable text, but if doing this on a consistent basis, it can be one hell of a time and effort saver.

    another alternative is web harvey
    in the end it is not that great but for what you need it is perfect

    so what you want is to
    1: specify a web page
    2: copy text on that page (what text, all or a sub-section, how do you specify what text)
    3: pulls first link after that text
    4: clicks link

    Am bored, can write you a desktop app in a couple of minutes that will:
    *include a text box for URL in 1
    *text box for specify a regex to extract text / or an id / class
    * pulls first link after text

    If you'd even bother with iMacros, I would highly recommend you learn some python stuff, it's really powerful, and this can be easily done using python urllib2 module. :)
