    So I have a program (Audio HiJack Pro) set-up to record a radio show in the morning and automatically create 20 minute long files. What I am trying to do is automatically send each 20 minute file to myself via e-mail after it is created. Would anyone know how this is possible? Hopefully someone can help me out.

    Applescript comes to mind immediately or maybe even Automator. If neither of those work, look into shell scripting. The problem you will have is that most ISPs limit the attachment size of e-mails. You may find that 20 minutes produces an attachment that is stripped from the e-mail by one of the e-mail servers on the route it takes.

    I'm trying to use automator (without any luck) and I have no idea how to use Apple Script. Hopefully I can figure something out in automator. As for the size of the file, it's a very low quality file and is not that big. I'm just trying to figure out a way to listen at work as my work has blocked the Sirius web-site.
