Schedule an email without plug-ins or add-ins?

Post by Mr . » Mon, 19 Dec 2005 01:45:21


When the options open for an email before sending it, is there any way to
get an option to make the e-mail a reoccuring email? IE every week, day,
etc. at a time... like it being a recurring task,appointment? I'd want the
email option also allow an option for the email to be automatically sent on
the designated schedule.

hmmm...

Trick is our admin types won't install any add-ins or plugins... so this
would most likely need to be a macro or VB script?

Any, ANY, help is appreciated!

Good Evening,

I went to the link, followed the steps and was able to get the form created
and saved to the personal folder. I was able to test the form code and it
did send the email, with an outlook email security prompt.

So I was pretty e *** d that it was working.... I continued with the steps
and tried to set up a shortcut on my desktop that would go to the form.

Here's my problem now: I can't seem to find the correct "path" to the form
I just made. The outlook personal folder seems to be hidden or somewhere
within outlook and I don't know what the path would be.

So what should I put in the path line of the shortcut?

I have used:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office /c "IPM.Note.Autoemailsendform" /a
Outlook:\\personalfolders\autoemailsendform

This does not work... says file not found.

hmmm

Once I get the shortcut, I believe I'll be able to use window's scheduler.
Correct?


Also, the notes indicate using redemtion objects to get rid of the pop up
security function?
Would this be simply a matter of copying the redemption object VB code and
replacing the script code that is included on the link's steps?

thanks!

Mr.

If you enclose the entire statement in quotes, does it work then?

Nope, I still get a file not found.

The full text I typed in the shortcut menu is:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OUTLOOK.EXE \c
"IPM.Note.AutoEmailSenderForm" \a Outlook:\Personal
Folders\AutoEmailSenderForm"

I thought I could publish the form somewhere outside outlook, like into "my
documents" folder, but outlook does not provide that option. So I guess the
trick is trying to figure out the last portion of the <pat>\<filename>
correct.

ell,

I tried tweaking the qoutes areound a bit and got the shortcut wizard to
accept the path below.


"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OUTLOOK.EXE" /c
IPM.Note.AutoEmailSenderForm /a Outlook:\Personal
Folders\AutoEmailSenderForm"

Now, When I click on the shortuct I get the following message:

The command line in the argument is not valid. Verify the switch you are
using.



I went out to office online and looked up the command line switches. I'm
not sure why it's not working. Do I need the <.> after IPM.Note or
should it be IPM.Note AutoEmailSenderForm

ou are asking the wrong person - I posted that I am not a programmer, nor
am I a wizard with command line switches to send items.

ounds understandable. I am not a programer at all, other than some simple
C++. Thank you for the comments.

Does anyone else have some suggestions on how to make the link work?

Since you're dealing with this already in another thread, why start another?
