Hi, I need some direction.

This is what I need to do:

If certain criteria in a record in one of my table is met (like a date passed) I want an email to automatically go out with some text that I specify to a person with an email address in another table in my DB.

For example, if an event happened (listed in tblEvents) I need an email go out the next day to a host of this event (listed in tblHosts).

From what I read it looks like I will have to set up a job and use VBScript to send email. Am I right? Did someone do something like this before and can help me?

Thanks so much,

Flowing Fount of Yak Knowledge
