    If you have a web server, you could set up a cron job to execute a PHP script which will send an e-mail at a certain time. If not, get a cron job going on your mac with a mail server doing the same thing.

    Other than that i wouldn't know a GUI way of doing this, except automator

    You could set up a repeating event in iCal and that would send an e-mail when designated.
