    I have done a very simular thing using Filemaker Pro and Mail. I have a certain email sent to different clients automaticlly on certain days, but I use it to run a business, its $299 so would not be something to just buy for a b-day program, but it is possible.

    Yup! Automator will do it for you! Just launch Automator, select Mail and choose your flow "Send Outgoing Messages" Hope this helps :p

    MS Entourage has a Send Later option. Not sure about Mail.

    Just to build on rmapple's reply...(hope he doesn't mind :))
    If you go into automator and select mail, there is a 'Send Birthday Greetings' option...I'm guessing this is what you want? :)
