    Unanswered: Sending email automatically using MySQL and PHP

    Hi all,

    I'm doing a project to build up a web based database using MySQL and PHP. I need to send a remind email to user automatically in a specific date. How can I do so?

    My tools:

    PHP 4.0
    MySQL
    Apache server
    Window XP


    Thank for your help!

    I you want to schedule some work or run a php file that sends the email then you have to use the windows scheduler in windows XP and if in linus the you have to use cronjob. using the cronjob you can set the time and specify the file to executed.
    I think you know the mail() to send the mail.

    There is no CRON in the WinXP off course. So try to use AT or Scheduler.
