Hi,

 

i want to schedule an email (with an excel file attached) to be sent out everyday (atleast once a week for now) to a group of people.

 

i want the excel file to be picked from my computer (as i update it on daily basis).

 

i do not want to send manually every time.

 

What are my options ?

Dont think Outlook would do this.

 

Have a look at these options instead - https://www.raymond.cc/blog/sending-email-using-command-line-useful-for-downtime-alert-notification/

 

Setup with task scheduler via a script.

update your file and store it in the Cloud (like SharePoint or Teams or even Outlook Groups)

 

Those platforms can automatically email them when a file updates.
