Schedule email for automatic future delivery

I was looking into how to schedule email to be sent automatically at a later time (tired of trying to remember birthdays?) I suppose you could do it with sendmail/mail and a script scheduled to run at a certain time, but for more GUIish solutions, I found a couple options:

  1. Install Thunderbird 2 here and use the Send Later add-on (as of now, Send Later doesn’t install on Thunderbird 3),
  2. Use Deferred Sender (works with any email account) or
  3. If you’re on Windows, there’s this guide for Outlook 2007
