Then hook into the overnight script loop by placing your script in config.mainresponder.callbacks.nightlyBackup.

I've not sent this message several times, but I guess I have no choice. I can't "see" what is going on.

I have a perfectly wonderful script that sends email to all members if there has been traffic during the day. The script works like a champ when I do it manually, when I put it in an Every Hour or Minute schedule. When I put it in Overnight, it doesn't work. It doesn't work on two different systems.

Ah. Writing is thinking! The script checks the messages during the day. In the wee hours of the morning, there have been no messages so the script works, but nothing is sent. Isn't that correct? Easy solution is to have overnight task occur before midnight rather than after. True?

There are responses to this message:
