Is it possible to automatically email the daily archive.php page as an html email newsletter?

For example, at 4am every weekday WordPress would send an email of the 2011/04/25/ page.

Any input is greatly appreciated!

There are plugins or other external solutions to do this, this related question lists some of them. – Jan Fabry Apr 26 '11 at 7:17

I do not think this is built into WordPress currently. This would probably need to be custom-built. It would be some php code that is attached to a cron job. Set the cron job to run every day, and have your php script email out the page.

Just to let you know that WP has its own cron system too – Ashfame Apr 25 '11 at 20:27
