Different problem. Sending a repeated static message monthly is one thing.
You could probably modify the password reminder to do that.
Sending a daily custom message is something else. You have a custom
scheduler of what granularity ? How much scripting will it allow for custom
fields ? Is your GUI person going to be able to do that ? Will he need a
full GUI editor that allows the insertion of tags for dates, pulling fields
from a database, running snipits of code to obtain that day's URL ? How will
you check that for injection of malicious code ?
That is the path of feature creep and bloat. And 0wned servers.
