I want to send emails on a timer. Help!

I want to be able to post new content to my blog during work hours. Blogger allows you to post via email. What I want to do is to be able to send emails at midnight and have them be delivered (and thus posted) at noon and 2pm, say, the next day. Outlook 2000 claims it can send messages delivered no earlier than a certain time, but it's not recognizing me as a sender (also, I'd like to be able to close up my laptop while I'm at work). Is there some easy hack or application that will let me do this? I have a GMail account, a Yahoo account, and an old college email webmail account but none of them seem to have this option. I checked out that "FutureMe" site but it doesn't have the option to set more than a delivery date.
(Please don't just say "post from your work computer." It's a government machine and my boss and coworkers know about the blog. I plan to announce whatever tech solution I use so they know that I am not blogging on government time.)
