If enabled in your Preferences, the email_reminders.php page will send you an e-mail with overdue tasks, today's tasks, upcoming tasks and high (and highest) priority tasks.=$cron->content?>
Using CRON on a UNIX/Linux/Mac OS X server you can set up a CRON job to load the email_reminders.php page at whatever interval you want to receive the email. On windows, I know you can schedule a task to do the same thing - someone tell me how and I'll add it here.
The your-password below is the 'Password for CRON Jobs' in your Server Settings.
Here is the syntax for 2 ways to hit the page at 3am using CRON.
This way should be most compatible:
0 3 * * * wget -q --delete-after http://www.example.com/tasks/email_reminders.php?password=your-password
Mac OS X users may need to use 'curl' instead of 'wget'.
0 3 * * * curl http://www.example.com/tasks/email_reminders.php?password=your-password
This way should work fine as long as you have lynx installed:
0 3 * * * lynx -source http://www.example.com/tasks/email_reminders.php?password=your-password
Note: your server must be configured to send e-mail for e-mail reminders to work.
