email-reminder Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies email-reminder-0.8.1.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Email-reminder allows users to define events that they want to be
reminded of by email.  Possible events include birthdays,
anniversaries and yearly events.  Reminders can be sent on the day of
the event and a few days beforehand.

This package includes the cron job that checks for events and send
reminders once a day, and a simple GUI allowing users to edit the
reminders they want to receive.


See the INSTALL file.


To add new reminders, use the "email-reminder-editor" program.
Reminders are automatically saved when the program is closed.

Use the "Test configuration" option in the "File" menu to force the
"send-reminders" script to run immediately.

Don't forget to set your name and email address under "Preferences" in
the "Edit" menu.

Sample files

Sample configuration files are included in the examples directory.

"email-reminder.conf" is a sample configuration file for the
"send-reminders" program whereas "email-reminders" is a sample user
reminder list.
