Automated asp.net processes - ASP.NET General

Hi everybody, I'm using Windows 2000 as a web server for asp.net applications.

    Default Automated asp.net processes

    Hi everybody,

    I'm using Windows 2000 as a web server for asp.net applications. Can
    anyone suggest a way that a server could run an automated process that
    could create and run a command on an asp.net object?

    The reason that I ask is that I have an application that I'm upgrading
    from asp to asp.net. This application has an email notification feature
    that is run periodically to inform users of updates to the site.

    The old application used a COM executable that was triggered weekly by
    the server to send the updates. I was wondering if there was a more
    elegant solution for the .net version.

    The new update feature is already written in .net and is triggered
    manually on a web page.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    You can use a WebRequest to do this. However, as this is a task that is to
    run on a schedule, don't you think it would be better to write an executable
    or WSH script to do the task, and schedule it to run with Task Scheduler?
