Create a script...with following line like ....and save it.
mailx -s "<subject line>" <email-id>  #u can also add text to mail u know how to do that

Then use below options,
crontab -e     Edit your crontab file, or create one if it doesnt already exist.
crontab -l     Display your crontab file.

follow ex below:-
to run a script at 22 PM EVERYDAY make this enrty in crontab file and save-------
0     22     *     *     *         <mention the complete path of the script that u created above>
