Is it possible for a web server to run a php script at a certain time?

for example I want to send a email to someone at 23:59 23 July 2009. Is it possible?

Yes. In linux this is called a cron job, and on windows you the task scheduler

what if the server is a remote one and I can't access task scheduler on the remote system?

is there a php script or a apache-based script available on the net that is similar to cron and task scheduler?
