How would I get a web site to Delay sending an email for 5 min (ASP.NET C)#

I don't know how to go about this, and am looking for some direction.  I need my site to send an email out, but this is the issue.  Send it out 5 minutes after they click the button, or close the browser.  Is this possible and if so, how?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Send it out 5 minutes after they click the button

// Make thread to pause for few minutes
System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(300000);
// Your code for sending email here

Normally you would have a separate service to handle sending the email at an appointed time, or after a specific delay. You certainly don't want to be sleeping a thread in a web application as suggested above!

I do agree with Carl Tawn. The solution was suggestive but not recommended for production environment. Thanks Carl for pointing it out.

Thanks but this is no good to me if it's unsafe, but no one is responding.
