For .NET, in many ways, writing a console app is not different than writing a web or a Windows forms application. So, if you know how to access a database through ADO and know how to send an e-mail then you're good to go.

I sort of assumed you were talking about .NET (because of the web services), but that may not be the case. What platform do you need to run this scheduled task on? There may be other ways to do this as well....
