    I've crossposted this to the MYSTIC echo, where this question is probably more suitable, and the answer can help other fellow sysops.

    With mutil, you can import a message from a text file. That paired with a cron,
    or a Windows task manager entry, or even better yet in Mystic's configuration you can use the internal task sheduler to run mutil once a month to post this text file you manually create.

    If you need more specific instructions, another fellow Mystic sysop can probably help you out with that. Keep an eye on the MYSTIC echo along with this
    one.

    HTH.

    Regards,
    Nick
