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?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

 
LeeDerbyshireCommented:
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.

this is a really simple one
open notepad
paiste the text below

save it as a sendemail.vbs or whatever you like

and run that from the scheduler in control pannel

Set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
 
objEmail.From = "from-name@domain.com"
objEmail.To = "toname1@domain.com;toname2.domain.com"
objEmail.Subject = "put subject here" 
objEmail.Textbody = "put body here"
objEmail.Send

Open in new window
