Daily or Random scans of a DB for updates

    I am building an application with ASP.net that is used for keeping up
    to date on pending tasks. I would like to send emails when items have
    been stagnant, or are going to expire.

    Does anyone know of or have feedback/ideas on creating something
    (software, service) to scan the database for items and then shoot off
    an email.

    Thanks

  2. A Windows Service would be the best way to implement this functionality
    assuming you aren't using a shared web host that restricts such things.

    Here's more info on Windows Services:

  3. Chuck,

    Consider using the database job scheduler.
