Automatic email to new user in organisation

Hi, i am after some sort of way to automate an email message to new user when they start in Organisation. When they click on Outlook for first time then that message should be populated in their inbox. It will help us in sorting out helpdesk calls for basic things such as  "How to install printer", "where to save files on network" and so on after they start on first day. We will write a template email listing all the "IT Faqs" and that what we need to push to their inbox.

Or let me know if there is anyother way i can do it other than email message.

if it's sbs2011 this sends a welcome email by default to new users.  (there may be a way to edit this to include the info you want)

otherwise you would need to look into creating a login script that generates an email and sends to the new user.  this is probably the easiest way to set it up.  i dont know of a 3rd party app that does this.

another expert can probably help with the scripting.

yeh this is probably something you'd have to manually create.  with a login script or similar to generate an email or email a template you created.  maybe post for assistance in the scripting section on how to script to generate an email.

there are plenty of smtp tools to send the email for you.  you'd just need to tell it what to send and to who.
