A step by step guide to creating a new project
From the main File menu, select New Project (the first time you run LBE Email Scheduler, it does this for you automatically).
You can edit the description to something more meaningful for you:
On the Message tab:
Enter the From information:
The recipients can be specified from your Outlook Contacts, a simple text file or a database or spreadsheet:
The first example uses Outlook:
Or you can specify the recipients in a simple text file:
Or, you can get the list of recipients from a datasource such as a database or spreadsheet:
For Excel use the following Connection:
Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\YOURPATH\YOURLIST.xls;Extended Properties="Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes"
(Change the "\YOURPATH\YOURLIST.xls" to your values)
HDR=Yes assumes you have a header row in your spreadsheet
SELECT Name, Email from [Sheet1$]
Above assumes the header row has two column headings Name and Email
Now tell the program the name of your SMTP server. If you are not sure, use the search function shown on the screen below or ask your ISP or Exchange administrator.
You can probably leave the "Send Settings" at their default values:
Click the Save Project button to save your work so far:
You can see that the Project Filename and Delivery Reports information has now been filled in.
You can send your newsletter now by clicking the Send Now button, you can also schedule it to run later and also cause it to repeat at any desired interval:
Click the Add New button, the program will suggest a name, but you may change it::
The new schedule is created with some default values. You may click the Edit button to change the schedule. You can change the time and recurrence, you can also set the schedule to run even if you are not logged into Windows by specifying the username and password of the account it should run under.
You can also create new schedules for this project. Each project may have multiple schedules independent of each other.
Of course, your machine must be switched on to run the schedules.
If you want the task to run when not logged in, click the Edit button, and untick the box "run only when logged in". You will need to specify a password for the user account it will run under.
Step 1: Ensure the scheduled task is running under an administrator account.
1. Click the Edit task button. In the Run as box type an administrator account name.
2. Click Set password button, input the administrator's password twice.
Step 2: Checking the Task Scheduler Service
To check the settings for the service:
Step 3: Please delete and recreate the scheduled task.
