Hi
 
Can I set up Hotmail so it will send the same email to someone once a month ? I want to set up a regular one as I might forget to do it manually..
 
Thanks

You could probably do this via scripting, but doesn't the hotmail environment have a built-in calendar feature in it's "ecosystem"?   If so (it's been ages since I have even thought about hotmail) it would make much more sense to use the calendar feature and set up an appointment that repeats monthly and sends an e-mail reminder for said "appointment."

 

That's how most of these setups allow you to send recurring reminders, through the calendar and e-mail working together.

Portoman,

 

          On further research I see that any of the various Microsoft web-based e-mail accounts that have been offered over the years have all been ported to Outlook.com, which definitely has a calendar feature.

 

           Were I you, and if the person you're looking to remind is someone who would let you get into their calendar (particularly if they are not using calendar themselves), I would simply set up a monthly recurring event in their personal calendar with the reminder type(s) you think would be adequate to get them to follow-through on the desired task.  It's a cinch to set this up in one's own personal calendar and far easier than trying to do it remotely via someone else's calendar.

Hello All,

 

To make Windows Live Hotmail reply to incoming emails in your absence:

 

1.)    Sign in online at www.outlook.com to your Hotmail or Outlook email account.

2.)    Click/tap on the gear icon at the top right, and click/tap on the More mail settings option.

3.)    Click/tap on the Sending automated vacation replies option under the Managing your account section.

4.)    Select (dot) Send vacation replies to people who email me, and enter the message you would like to send. 

5.)    Uncheck the Only reply to your contacts box, and click/tap on the Save button.

6.)    When you now receive an email, the sender will receive this automatic reply message.

 

Hope, this helps!

 

Cheers,

Michael Lipsey
