    Automatic Email Reminder From Excel Without Spreadsheet Being Open

    Hi all,

    I am trying to make a spreadsheet with a list of dates and for it to send automatic email reminders at given times. As the purpose of this is to create reminders, the idea is to be able to receive these reminders via email without the spreadsheet being open. I have attached below a macro spreadsheet created with just a small dummy sample of names and dates but have not been able to get it to work.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Kind Regards

    The workbook will need to be open to run the macro.

    You can use the Windows Scheduler program to run the workbook.


    Or you can utilize this resource instead :

    samsmith123, perhaps a minor modification to your macro is enough. The secret is in the use of the DeferredDeliveryTime property of the MailItem object. The whole is attached.
    How it's working? Every now and then, once a day is enough, open this workbook. In MS Outlook, e-mails with a delayed dispatch date will be defined according to the value in column C. But for these e-mails to be actually sent, Outlook must be running on the defined dispatch days (at this point, Excel can be closed). Until they are sent, the e-mails are stored in the "Outbox" folder.

    Code in ThisWorkbook module:
