    Hi avinash_takale,
    The two other good options are

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

    But on server location how we can install our windows service.
    I don't think so it will work.
    And about task schedular we can't access server for this.

    please tell me any other good option
    Thanks in advance

    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.
