SQL and JDBC are for accessing databases, not for sending mails; check out the JavaMail API for that (the JavaEnterpriseEditionFaq has helpful links about it).

Or are you asking how to do a query to get dates less than 3 days away? If so, what database are you using? Have you looked at the date functions for that database?

OK, so the problem has nothing to do with sending emails, and everything to do with writing a SELECT statement. Post the statement you have used so far, and describe which records it -correctly or incorrectly- selects. Also tell us the data types and sample values of the involved attributes.
