I'm curious, does anybody have a decent solution for sending e-mails via Mail.app at some scheduled times? I'm badly in need of something like that :)

You can use Apple scripts to setup mail app schedule mail via iCal

Or use web based service as Martin said

Tried Mail Scrips already, scheduled sending from drafts but they failed to send the e-mails... do you personally use Mail Scrips? –  Kaspa Sep 3 '10 at 21:32
    
I dont use mailscripts, but for testing I download and test it. It works for me. Make sure you save message as draft Make sure the "mailscripts" calendar has been created in iCal Make sure you've save message as draft and schedule delivery event appears in ical "mail scripts" Your computer need to be running when event in iCal time. If not, messages will be sent as soon as your computer turn on next time. Tested software: OS Mac OS X 10.6.4 Mail app 4.3 (1081) –  S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Sep 4 '10 at 18:59

I believe that you don’t consider Deferrersender (web based) to be decent. It’s not, but it delivers.

UPDATE: An alternative, that doesn’t use Mail.app (but Thunderbird) would be to use SendLater. An extension that does exactly that. But it’s for Thunderbird. I couldn’t find a similar plug-in for Mail.app.
