    automated email based on calendar event (2003)

    I have a number of clients' birthdays in my Outlook calendar and would like Outlook to automatically send a birthday greeting to them on the day of their birthday or a belated greeting if after the birthday. I have looked in Outlook help and searched the Lounge to no avail.

    I presume I will need to create a mail form with the appropriate text. I thought there might be a calendar "rule" I could create (similar to the email rules) but am unable to find one.

    Am I expecting too much or is this capability within Outlook?

    Pretty much all the Rules are message oriented. You could code your concept, but it wouldn't be drop-dead simple. (I did look around some of the better Outlook sites for such a product, but nothing seems to do everything you are looking for.)

    Dave,

    Sorry, but the answer is NO. I was not able to find an automated solution within Outlook.

    Mapilab has an addition that fires off automated e-mails.
