If you can't schedule a job on the server.....

1) create an ASPX page that on Page_Load, retrieves the data and emails it
2) create a scheduled job on your local machine that fires a request to this page when required, or just manually browse to the page when you want the email updates.

Just hide the ASPX page away in a random subfolder that's not linked to anywhere so it can't accidently be found by visitors.

Hi avinash_takale,
The two other good options are

1. Windows service
2. Task scheduler to scheduling your task on server.
