Make a class that sends your email and schedule it as a Linux cron job or Windows scheduler application.

Be sure to allow for trying again after a delay when the mail server is not responding for some reason.

Quartz is a popular scheduler.
But Why do you need a jsp? Is it because you may want to change the contents/configuration etc?
All you need is a scheduler, and a batch job.
