    Hallo,

    I'd like to have an application run once a week every week and wondering how i could automate this?

    Would anyone be so kind enough to throw a few pointers this way? The app is only ecamm's phoneview.

    Thanks!

    Well, you can use Cronnix, which is a GUI front end to cron. There's another one called Crontooie, but is a bit older. Though you still need to know what you're doing, but it's not that hard to figure out if you read that wikipedia link I provided earlier.
