Looking for simple way to create scheduled emails from perl script


I need to take an HTML form submission and create a database entry. No problem there, but how can I then, based on a time/date chosen on the form, send an email? would it be better to have the script create a crontab file, or is there a perl module out there that I am unfamiliar with?

Any help would be most appreciated!
