Alert Or Reminders For Message Crazy Managers.

This agent may save you time from sending reminders or alert messages out to
people in your company. Put this agent in your mail database or elsewhere for
specific functionality. Any message that you are used to sending out on a
regular basis should be automated if possible. You can even use this to let
your manager know each week that you are working on your timesheet or weekly
status report and will get that into them shortly.

If you would like to receive a generic database with the agent described above
(you can copy & paste into your mail template); e-mail me.
