comment What are some good approaches to separating test data from test scripts?
@KatePaulk These tests are meant to be independent of each other, but there are dependencies in the data (data type 2 depends on data type 1, which are both data I'll need to specify for a test). It looks like I have a lot of dependencies, as you mention.

comment Web application GUI automation best practices
@PhilKirkham Automating at the GUI level can have benefits, particularly in regression testing or acceptance testing. I wouldn't say to do no automated GUI testing.

comment Outlook Mail testing
Definitely go with C# or other .NET tools with Outlook. In my experience with SilkTest and Outlook, Outlook does not play well at all with third-party automation tools.

+1 This is the kind of answer I'm looking for. I've mostly tested only desktop applications without much concern for networking aspects, so this helps me picture what can got wrong.

comment Testing random number generation
The Beautiful Testing chapter is actually really good, since it talks about testing without getting into any heavy-duty math or statistics. I really recommend it.
