Email-Reminder
--------------

Email-reminder allows users to define events that they want to be
reminded of by email.  Possible events include birthdays,
anniversaries and yearly events.  Reminders can be sent on the day of
the event and a few days beforehand.

This package includes the cron job that checks for events and send
reminders once a day, and a simple GUI allowing users to edit the
reminders they want to receive.


Installation
------------

See the INSTALL file.


Usage
-----

To add new reminders, use the "email-reminder-editor" program.
Reminders are automatically saved when the program is closed.

Use the "Test configuration" option in the "File" menu to force the
"send-reminders" script to run immediately.

Don't forget to set your name and email address under "Preferences" in
the "Edit" menu.


Sample files
------------

Sample configuration files are included in the examples directory.

"email-reminder.conf" is a sample configuration file for the
"send-reminders" program whereas "email-reminders" is a sample user
reminder list.
