How to generate an auto email without logging into software

P: 64

I done a project in with VB coding and sql server 2005 as back end.

Now i need to generate an auto email everyday for current date based on the date field in my database table .

For Example: Today is 05/03/2008 means, i want to generate a report(records from database related to this date) without logging into the software and need to send mail.

I can able to generate email and crystal report file as pdf.

But now i want to create those pdf and mailing without logging into software.

Any idea.

Do you know about windows service. Windows service is used to scheduling some tasks(especially for sending automatic emails) . Windows service can be started automatically when system is switched on and also can be stopped when system is shutted down. That is Windows service is running along with the system. So you can schedule some task to be running per hour, minute or second. You can use Systems.Timer(not Windows.Forms.Timer) control to shedule your automatic email notification task.

Let me knowm if you have any queries.
