How can I schedule the same message to be sent every month from Exchange to a Distribution List

I would like to send a 'reminder' notification to a distribution list from an exchange mailbox. Is it possible to do this.  For example, I would like to send it the first of every month.

Thanks!

i would be inclined to do that from a VBscript and use windows scheduler.

Does the sent message actually need to be saved in one of your user's Sent Items folder?  It's easier if it doesn't, since you can just use something like Blat, in conjunction with the previously mentioned scheduler:

I do not need to save it in a sent folder.  I am not very familiar with VBScript and the scheduler.  Can you offer more specifics?

If you don't need to save the message, download a copy of blat, and use that.  The easiest way to find out about the scheduler is to open a CMD prompt, and type
AT /?

Actually, easier than AT /? is to go to you Control Panel, and look for Scheduled Tasks.  There is a wizard to help create a new one.

objEmail.From = "from-name@domain.com"
