Remember that current structure of mailman is not good at arbitrary 
scheduling.  You may have to run a scheduling script every hour or so.
It would be easier to use your PC (Windows or Linux) to send a message 
in a scheduled time.  May be you can send a message with an "Approved" 
header and a "confirm" command with the confirmation string in the hold
