Well, it *can* operate on the server, as you can save and schedule the file there.

The alternative is to schedule Internet Explorer to pop open at certain times and request the page. Pretty messy solution.

By creating a script file, you can stick to the same programming knowledge you use for your ASP pages. IMO, it's a nice and clean way to run stuff at the server at certain intervals.

I have been using scripts like this for years to both read and send e-mail from automated accounts and it works perfect.
