Can Universal email be used to send an email automatically every day

Can Universal email be used to send an email automatically every day

Can Universal Email be used to send an email, automatically, every day to everyone on my registration list (Developed by WA User registration Pack). My subscribers require the email sent to them containing a link to updated information.

If this is not possible using just Universal Email, what other packages or extensions would I need?

It's probably obvious, I'm not a pro or even intermediate in web design but am a fast learner, using Dreamweaver CS3. Any pointers and advise would be appreciated.

This feature is not available in Universal Email or any of our other tools. This can however be done fairly easily with the use of a cron job in Linux or a Scheduled Task in Windows depending on your server environment.

You can use these mechanisms to schedule execution of a particular script at a defined interval. I think this is the thing you are looking for.

/usr/bin/php public_html/dailyemailprogram.php

The above is an example of what you'd add to CRON.
Notice that there is a SPACE between the php and public

I am new to universal email. Can you be more specific on how to create daileyemailprogram.php?

Are you familiar with scheduled tasks or cron jobs in linux? This is the key to this type of setup, you setup a task to execute the script page that sends the emails. The page itself must be crafted and confirmed to be working first though. Please post back with any questions that you have about Universal Email and getting your emailing page in place and we will be glad to help you with what we can.
