    i know that emails generated and sent to the Automaton expire after 3 days, does anyone know if there is a way to create them in advance, ie by changing your system clock etc..

    with my holiday just round the corner, it's depressing to see what i may miss out on.

    any ideas anyone?

    Off the top of my head, you could:

    a) re-generate the PGP encrypted emails once a day so they're always current

    b) generate each one on the fly as you attempt registration (although this will leave you with a small delay as PGP runs)

    c) create them in advance by changing your system date (I've never tried this so you'll have to test it first)

    If you give a bit more detail about the system/script/programme you're using to send the emails then maybe we can give you more info...

    The emailing programme i use runs from a pre-signed email thats been pasted into a .txt file.

    and i schedule using windows scheduler.

    So, the problem is, that the emails will be generated at the same time, and will all expire in 3 days, but i want to be able to send them after the 3 day period - the only thing i can think off is messing with the system clock and create the email and sign it in the future (within the 3 day period)

    or get myself a time machine

    can anyone confirm that this works?
