Is it possible to set up outlook so that it can send email automatically after schedule intervals.
I want to set it up like it can send emails daily weekly at some particular time.
I know there are some Paid Add-in for outlook from third party vendors but is there any Free option availabe from Microsoft.
I am using windows XP and outlook 2007.

Not sure this is possible, although I am only familiar with Office 2003.  I'll try and check it out nonethe less.

What is the trigger that prompts you to send this email?
Is it a notification you want to sent to users?  
Are the reciptients inside or outside your organisation?
Is it simply to remind users of soemthing?

Kind Regards

Is there an incoming email that would trigger this for you, id a rule could be set up.

I don't believe it's supported in Outlook 2007. Are you aware of the delay delivery option? It's more of a one time use though. You could conceivably create multiple templates of the same email and schedule each one out with a delay delivery option. Might be more work than it's worth though.

quick search on the web brought this up :

I'm not familiar with this program, or the others on the page, so I highly caution you to research them before actually downloading and installing one of the programs.

This is actually a notice that i want to send to a group of users in our organization.
Sender as well as  recipient, both are inside the organization.

I am aware of delay delivery option but thats only for one time.

Without a plug-in or something else I suggest a Calendar or task reminder would be an effective solution.

Create the calendar entry in your own calendar and then add each of the recipients or add them all to the same group......thats how Id do it.  Otherwise you could create a delayed send for multiple mails, high administration, though.

and if those other people dont use outlook, so much for the reminder working.

it is odd i find that something, one would think, is so simple is not included in outlook.

delayed send only works once.
