Starting a New Thread when IIS starts

I have a requirement for my web application to start a new thread to process daily emails.   This thread should start when IIIS starts so that no one actually has to open a web page for it to work.  Is this possible?    Can the new thread launch when IIS starts up?

p.s.
[ I know that I can schedule a stored procedure to run through SQL Server or run a separate app in task scheduler but the requirements for this project are to keep all the logic in the one single web application)

Sorry but no.  Web sites are stateless and IIS simply sits waiting to fulfill requests for web pages.  Code is only executed when a user requests a page.

By process emails do you mean receive or send?

I had thought about using the Application_Start and _End functions but the warning the URL display pretty much describes the issue.

I built a currency trading application that had to poll providers for values and I found that I couldn't trust those events, however, you are more than welcome to try.  For your purposes it might work.

Cheers
