Recurring Email with Voting Buttons

I am trying to send out the exact same email, with the same voting buttons, everyday. Is there a way to do this with Outlook? I found answers with scripts with voting buttons for a designed form and other answers for recurring emails but not for both.

I've learned from Experts that I should write down the real purpose:

The purpose is to get a response from all 100 people in the department, everyday. A yes or no.

Therefore, it doesn't have to be an email. If you know an answer with MS Calendar or Tasks or any Microsoft 2003 Suite of Programs, that would be great.

Now you could automate the above a little bit but saving your PreSetup Email Template to your local C: Drvie

Say call it DailyVote.msg

The open Notepad

add the  following


"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\Outlook.exe" /f DailyVote.msg

Then, in notepad, choose File> Save As
Change the Type to ALL FILES
Name the File DailyVote.msg

Note** The above is for office 2010, if using 2007 change Office14 to Office12

Save this bat file to C:\BatFiles\

If folder doesnt exist create it

Then go into your Control Panel
Open Administrative tools
Go into Scheduled Tasks

Add this bat file to scheduled tasks and set it to run every day at XX:XX

Now this wont open and send, but it will open it on your screen
all you need to do is click on send

Might not be fully automated, but at least you wont forget
Unfortunatley in OUtlook You cannot create the email and have it recurring (auto send) everyday.

What you can do is create your email you would like to send every day, with your voting options.

Then save it in your drafts, or save it to your desktop

Then when you get in , all you have to do is open and send it.

However, if you require a YES/NO response from everyone
I wouldnt be too confident of the results, given people are not required to click on yes/no and if they are out of the office they are not neccisarily going to see it until they get back....
Ah, if using office 2003



"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe" /f DailyVote.msg
