Thanks Neale, Curt, Michael & Joe.

Thank you all for your help & support, The version suggestion is good but I
am not able to get the version number. Even the idea of getting the email
addresses is also good, still a user may give a invalid address as
identified by Curt for which some extra checks might be required. For my
requirements I think the Joe's approach of storing the Version number in the
AppParam sounds good.

Thanks & Regards,
Rajat Kaushal.

While this sort of mail is an excellent marketing tool, I would
implement the auto-upgrade as well. It's cheap, and works even if the
user gives you a fake mail address, or changes his address.

The point, I would guess, is to save pain on server side upgrades by
minimizing the support requirements for old protocols.
