The D7 doesn't do email, it does APRS.  To be obnoxiously precise, you 
can't.

You _can_ have some program running on an internet attached computer 
that watches the APRS-IS data stream for your gated position reports 
and have it send email for you.

You can send an APRS _message_ that's gated to email, but you would 
have to enter your position as part of the message text.  And it's a 
manual process.

I can't remember what the maximum TX interval on the D7 is, but I'm 
pretty sure it's less that 12 hours, so if you wanted to limit it to 
once or twice a day you'd have to beacon manually.
