Hi,

You need to create a schedule tasks to perform this task,

If you want to export user list, who not logged in for days, Please refer below link and implement,

Once you have user list, create a SMTP server and import user list and trigger a mail.

MySQL has init-connect, which you can use to cause any login by a non-SUPER user to update a table.

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_init_connect

Perhaps something like:

init_connect='UPDATE mydb.userCount SET count = count + 1 WHERE userName = CURRENT_USER()'

Then use a scheduled task to run a script to check that table and send the email.
