I'm not allowed to sync my work calendar with my home calendar through the usual methods, but I am able to email my calendar to a personal address and then sync to my home calendar.

Is there a way that I can automate this, so that every 7 days Outlook 2010 or 2013 emails my personal address the next 7 days of my calendar?

I've looked for an add-on and can't find one. I'm wondering if I can combine a scheduled email task with some VBA or other method.

Or, maybe there is a plugin out there that I haven't found yet?

Is it possible to send an automatic email every 7 days, it might be possible with an add-on, but there is no default out of the box feature that supports this. – Ramhound May 30 '13 at 11:50
Ramhound, thanks, I know how to use automated tasks to send emails. Was wondering if there was an add-on, or a work around that maybe combined automated tasks with something else. Doesn't have to be simple! – conradj May 30 '13 at 12:18
I am not going to start looking for an add-on that does this, you can do that, and I don't do product recomendations here a Superuser. – Ramhound May 30 '13 at 16:06
Edited the question to make it clearer as to what I'm looking for help with. – conradj May 31 '13 at 8:31
You can always write your own add-on. Its unlikely you will be able to do this with a VBA script. Here is a general idea of how you would write a VBA macro that sends an email though:… found it by doing a Google search – Ramhound May 31 '13 at 12:02

I know this an old topic but it is similar to what I was trying to do. I found the following Link on Technet which explains how to schedule a task to run each week.

I know the linked page contains a LOT of data but a precis or abridged version posted into your answer (giving source) would make it future-proof in case the linked webpage moves and/or someone else want so to do a search for it. – Tog Dec 24 '13 at 13:37
