-c        run the job under the csh shell
-m     mail a message to the user about the successful execution of the command
-f        use the file whose name follows (/username/export.tcsh) as input rather than the default stdin.

Your command should be followed by

-t [[CC]YY]MMDDhhmm[.SS]

to specify date and time where the job should run.
