my idea is run a thread with the waiting time of couple of hrs.Every time the thread run it can compare the date in the database with the system date.If it matches it can invoke a servlet and pass that detail(date,name,email address) which will send emails.
I hope this will work out.

I am moving this to the "Other Java APIs" forum as this is really a Java Mail question.
