	Not within mailman, no.

	You need to use the scheduling facilities to do this sort of 
thing which are provided by your OS.  For Unix and Unix-like OSes 
(such as MacOS X), that would be "cron".  Similar facilities are 
available under Microsoft OSes, although I believe you may need 
third-party utilities to do that.
