Sending either a task or reminder in Outlook

Post by seswho704 » Thu Jul 26, 2007 5:14 am

I have a VBScript applet reading an Excel spreadsheet and sending e-mail to the e-mail addresses in one of the columns. This is accomplished via the CDO.Message object. I need to also create either a reminder or task set for two weeks and 30 days so the users can respond to the e-mail that was sent to them. I have searched the Internet for any code snippet(s) on how to do this (send the reminder or task).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That is a fairly complext task the uses the Outlook object model.

Check out this site as it contains a world of information and examples on Outlook programming most can be converted to vbscript with a little effort.

Post back if you have questions on conversion issues.
