Having Calander send E-mails

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to figure out how to do some things to make the office run more smoothly. I always get the lackey jobs and well, I'm just twiddling my thumbs for the most part with google and I thought I could look for some help here.

What I want is to be able to place dates on the calander and when that date/time comes send out e-mails to everyone. Mostly reminders and what not. Even better if there was a way to automatically create those when setting a schedule using macros or something else. I'm comfortable with computers but I don't know if this is even possible and the general searching hasn't turned up anything. If there is a way I'd appreciate it. Thank you very much everyone!
We have a code sample at Send an email when Outlook reminders fire | Slipstick Systems that will send an email when a reminder fires - that will be a good base to start with.

The hard part would be to make it send a different person an email each time, but you could use the Contact linking field in a task or appointment and grab the address from that field. It would be something like objMsg.To = .Contacts Use the appt body to be the message body (objMsg.body = .body)

I promised myself I would not play with macros this week, but I might just break my promise. <g>
Well, that was easy (and fun!) - I have updated code at Send an email when Outlook reminders fire | Slipstick Systems that sends a message to the email address in the location field if the appointment is in the category "send message".

I couldn't get it to work with the linked contact field in Outlook 2010 - but you won't be using a real location if you are using the appointment to trigger an email.
Thank you so much! And I think I could fiddle with telling it to input one of the field's as the address to e-mail it to. Though luckily turns out I'll just be batch e-mailing all of them to everyone it's relevant to. And since this is just for reminders to contact clients it will be the same people every time. Now what I need to get it to be able to do, is automatically pop up the reminders the start of business the day before and the day of client meetings then, then It'd be stellar.

Edit: Clearly you thought of that before I got a chance to. I'm glad to know that works!

P.S. Thank you so much for being so very helpful.
