You can probably use task scheduler to do this directly

Its pretty simple.

If you want something fancier and scriptable, you might be able to set up blat - its a pretty minimal, scriptable mail server- which can be set up with the --install argument. You can set up a batch file to be sent by task scheduler, calling blat, with whatever information you want on it.

of course, you'd need to make sure you had a default email client installed and configured, in order for Windows to be able to send you that email. If, for example, you only used Yahoo Mail in your web browser, the computer might have issues sending you an email without any outgoing mail settings. –  Bon Gart Apr 21 '13 at 16:15
