Hi i have a web page that sends SMTP emails when it's browsed and i need to send these emails at a scheduled time. So I used the windows task scheduler to do this for me.

Question 1. Sometimes Im getting the same email several times meaning that my webpage was refreshed more than once per schedule.

to fix this i added a new step to my schedule. to close internet explorer. i created an .exe according to this (which closes all internet explorer windows when i double click on it and run it) http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/how-do-i-kill-all-the-iexploreexe-processes-at-once/

Question 2 now even though my step 1 runs in the schedule my step 2 doesn't run and close the web page.

can someone please help me with Q1 or Q2? much appreciated. thank you.

Why do you close IE? If you want to avoid sending multiple emails via SMTP, clear cookies and/or session variables.
