I have a system that has user interaction and expiration. I want to remind the users 7 days before the expiration of their account. I want to use a button called "Remind by mail" beside every users account and the button will send automatic mail having the structure from a predefined format. How can I accomplish this automated mailing system.

I got that out. I have used a filed in the db for every user - mail_sent. The no of mail sent is increased if the mail is sent successfully. I have used smtp_mail class for this purpose.

Hi
If I remember right, you have to have cron job.
cron job is job that authomaticly run your script and I have no idea how to create it in windows or linux.
If somebody alse host your website, just ask them to create it for you, but if you host your own website just search on google to find tools or toturial to create cron job.
I hope this help you

mani_he

To edit your crontabs under *nix type:
$ crontab -e

Type the following to read the manual page that describes the file format:
$ man 5 crontab
