    For example, someone wants me to send them a reminder email on January 17 to set up a meeting. Right now I have an iCal event to remind myself. There must be an automated way to go about this. Ideally I would have the program send the email anytime I have internet connection on the 16th. And it would be cool to have a copy go to my inbox to remind myself that the email sent.

    Is there a plugin for Mail I an use? Or does Mail already do this?

    both automator and applescript can do this. (i currently dont have my mac now, otherwise i can write you a script for both or them)

    if you have not had any programming experience, play around with automator, it's not difficult at all

    and after you have your workflow by automator, you want to use ical to remind you by run that workflow, then it'd do it automatically.
