    In what context, Patrice? Within the Lounge, or with Outlook, or with another e-mail client? If in the Lounge, do you mean an e-mail of digests of Forums?

    Re: automatic send of e-mail

    I'm not an Outlook guru, so someone may come up with a better idea. Try this: set up a recurring task, assign it to all the folks you want to send the e-mail to, and then set the reminder for when you want to send the e-mail. Every time the reminder reminds you, e-mail the assignees with whatever the message is. If the message is the same, such as a time-sheet reminder, you can embed the text in the task or attach it as an e-mail Item. This will not automatically send an e-mail if you are not in the office, so it may not meet your needs.

    You can also set e-mail messages to be delivered at a set future time (Options, Do Not Deliver Before), but I don't know how to "recur" such a message.

    Re: automatic send of e-mail

    i think i answered a similar question a week or so ago... use scheduled tasks (if the message is identical every time).

    if it's not identical, you have two options - set a reminder in tasks or use task scheduler but don't use the send code in the custom form (or don't use a custom form).
