Word - mail merge, scheduled sending of the email.

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit , msn email - the free one, and I use office 2007.  I do a monthly mail merge sometimes using  Word but as MSN has a limit of the number of emails that can be sent per day, i.e. 100 and my list is 160, I would like to send the emails in staggered batches.  Eg ID 1 to 50 at 6 pm today, and then 51 to 90 at 9 pm today, and 91 to say 120 at 9 am tomorrow and the rest from say at 3 pm tomorrow.  
Can this be done either using Word or is there any Add ON.  The emails data comes from an Access 2007 query.  I use Outlook 2007 to send the emails.
Thank u for your guidance.

Maybe you want to think about switching to gmail....

Another easyish way would be to add a field in access for "Mailing list". You can give everyone a value of a, b, or c (put 50 in each).  Then you could just do 3 different mail merges, and each day filter the query so that you only get the people in one of the mailing list. That way you'll only get 50 people in each batch.
