My isp has an web front end for email.. it doesn't allow you to change the

You can stop at this point ;) FPC may be 'able' to OLE automate in this way, 
but it's a 'hack', 'kludge' etc, in-so-much-as if you do it in Delphi, you 
don't have to do any of this. I doubt that this answer was what the original 
poster was after. It's only a solution if you truely understand how the whole 
com/ole mechanism works to quite a low level. I would *not* call 
it 'supporting' OLE Automation. After all I could instanciate and use C++ 
classes in FPC - if I hand code the calls in assembler. I wouldn't call 
this 'supporting' C++ by a long chalk.
