How to send a delayed notification email?

How to send a delayed notification email?

I have a requirement to send an email to the service requestor 2 days after the main fulfillment task is completed.  I know I can create a task that auto-completes using the Dummy adapter, but is there a way to make it auto complete after a certain amount of time has elapsed?  I was thinking about creating a second fulfillment task that would send this email upon completion, but I can't figure out how to delay its start or its end.

The wrinkle here, of course, is t
