SMF 2.0 Job Request

Hi All
I have SMF forum hosted and need to send mass mail to all my users.
My host has limitation of sending 200 mails per hour. I know i can send mass mail and can throttle mails using cron jobs.

Is it possible to have a JOB feature in SMF itself which can set a cron job automatically on server.
Also this should have options, where in, Admin will set the mails/hour.

if anyone can make this mod or SMF incorporates this as a feature in SMF 2.0 then it will be very handy,

as of now , i have imported all email id's from DB and configured SendBlaster Pro to send 200 mails per hour.

Have you seen the mail queue feature of SMF 2.0? It doesn't use cron but instead sends a limited number of e-mails out per page load.

A cron could be scripted with a bit of SSI and a few queries but I don't think a script to do this already exists
