    If you can make a web page that sends out the material, it shouldn't be too hard to use a scheduling program (eg task scheduler in windows) to open that page once/day.

    This can be easily done by threading in Asp.net as far as ASP is concern DTS packages in SQL Server or as jimfraser suggested windows task scheduler can do this.

    there is a way, all you do is name all your material files by numbers, ie 1, 2, 3, 4 etc

    Now each time the user is sent one, it knocks up a counter so the next time it will send the next material.

    I'll write ya a script when I get to work ( getting ready at the moment )

    Speak then
