    Sending Email

    hi ,
    i have a page which collects the the time in minutes , an email id ,a message box and a responce time which also collects the time in miutes.

    i need a code which can send the emails to that email id for each time interval upto the responce time.

    for example if the user enters 10 min's and gave a email id rama@yahoo.com and 2 hours in responce time .then code should be able to send the email message entered in the message box for every 10 mins to that emaild ID upto 2 hours.

    it's very urgent.Help me ASAP

    Ok can't really help you as i have had a few problems with the mail script myself. But i was just thinking you will need to be carefull.
    If you start sending emails to one address every few mins the isp might block emails from you as they think its spam.

    the best solution is a cronjob on the server.

    You need to contact your Hosting company on how to set it up or if they have that option. What domain management program are you using?

    Cron jobs allow you to automate repetitive tasks on the server that hosts your web site. This is a powerful tool that allows you to take a hands-free approach to repetitive tasks. For example, you could add a cron job that automatically copies a MySQL database to a separate location on your site as a backup.
