Recurring e-mail

By pdpjp ·
I have a user who wishes to have an e-mail message resend itself every two weeks through outlook as a reminder for them to execute certain tasks.
Any ideas?

Recurring e-mail

by Mikel~T In reply to Recurring e-mail

I think you need to provide a little more detail. Where do they want the email sent? What type of reminder are we talking about? In Outlook, you can schedule an email to not be delivered before a certain date/time: you could schedule the same email to be delivered every 2 weeks, though you're outbox will be full of these until the delivery time is reached.

Hope this sheds some light.

why not schedule a recurring task to generate a prompt every two weeks. If the user wants to send the email to himself, just set up a task.

User is looking for Outlook to generate the e-mail and send it out every month to a distribution list.

I know you can set a time for an email to go out. Start a new email then go to view/options and check the do not deliver until box. I know this is a way to delay one email. I don't think you can have multiple dates unless you use a third party software.

Good Luck

This is pretty easy to do with a custom form and whatever Windows scheduling program you prefer. See http://www.slipstick.com/dev/olforms/skedreport.htm.

If you do not insist on outlook, you can do the following:

1. Go to www.usa.net and create an email account (free)

2. Log in.

3. In the left-hand window, click "Basic Services", then click "Scheduling"

4. Set up your message and frequency. For every two weeks, use two monthly messages on different days of the month.

Good luck.
