I am currently trying to develop my system that would send an email reminder to a user when the deadline for a particular matter is approaching. I did a bit of a research online and I realised that I will need to do some sort of a cron job. However, speaking to my mentor, he told me that I could do some sort of a task scheduling in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 that would automatically cause a trigger at a specific time or at a period of time.
I've tried Googling it up but yet, I am left confused and stuck. Can anyone enlighten me with some information regarding this problem that I am facing now? Btw, I am using ASP.NET and MS SQL 2005 Express Edition.
Thanks in advance and really appreciate those who is able to help me.
