Hello! I'm looking for a way to setup a scheduled weekly e-mail to send from within Outlook 2000.  The idea is to provide a weekly e-mail reminder to someone for the next 10 weeks without having recreate the e-mail over and over. I know I could create 10 emails and then set the do not deliver before date in the Message Options. What I'm hoping to find is VBA or VB code to get me started.
Thanks

EFrayer...

I set something similar up for my parents... seems they can remember to turn on the computer, but not to look at their calender on the fridge.

Needless to say, I modified an Outlook 2000 task that sends reminders to a pager (see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;q236774&) so that it would instead email my parent's email addresses.

Basically, you're going to set up a new user; then you will add some script from the above link to generate an email whenever an appointment, or task reminder appears in your calendar.  Then, you can set your appointment as a weekly task & have the system generate the email weekly.

Hope this helps!

Eric,
First, nice (first)name! Second, thanks... this is exactly what I'd like to be able to do. I appreciate the help.
Best,

p.s. any chance you can paste your code into a text file and send it along? :) EFrayer@aol.com

Goodness... I'd have to get them to email it to me... which means I gotta call them.  ::gasp::  Well, I'm making the 4 hour drive this wkend... if I can get in and out of their house unnoticed, I'll get the code.  Otherwise, I'll see if I can't remember what I did & send it along.
