Hello everyone,

I have a batch file (aqadmcli.exe), that I run from the Desktop of my Exchange server. I use it to delete junk messages sent the postmaster account. Anyway; I'm running it manually, but I would like to put it on a schedule to run it automatically.
So in conclusion, I need to know if anyone has a suggestion on how run this batch file based on a schedule.

Thank you,

Hi Aguillon1949,
Why not use windows task scheduler?

Control panel
schedule tasks

The Task Scheduler does not seem to give me the option to create an hourly schedule to run the batch file; I would like to run it on an hourly basis,

After you create the task go to properties
schedule tab
advanced button
Repeat task every 60 min
Set duration to 23 hours
