Sending email alerts

I need to have a program running that will check at regular intervals
whether or not an alert email needs to be sent out reminding the user of
a task that needs to be completed, and then send that email out.

Does anybody know how I would go about doing this?

I know how to send an email, the bit that I am not sure about is how to
create a project that checks at regular intervals whether an email needs
to be sent.

I just wrote a console app and let the customer schedule it for whenever
they wanted to.
