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

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
