I have got a custom post type called reminders.

It has the following meta boxes.

specific date
It is allocated to a specific user

I would like to know how to go about creating a cron job to send email to the user on the specific date.

I am comfortable with using the following.

Using cpanel to fire off the cron job every evening.
Compiling a php file to send the email. I would like not to use plugins.

Keep in mind that we might have more than one email that needs to be sent to different users.

Appreciated if somebody could point me in the direction I need to go.
