View Full Version : Automatic Timing scheme

10-05-2004, 04:26 AM

I'm creating a script that will mail a user of my webpage exactly 2 days after he/she has requested an email. (by them submitting a request form) I do have a timer function that detects how many days have elapsed since request but the point is this mailing script is activated only by running a php page. How would I do this automatically without anyone having to access this "See if right time has elapsed -> then send" page?
