Here is an idea...

maybe set up a cron for it?
as IC run a cron each day like the following
00 9 * * * /usr/local/interchange/bin/interchange
--runjobs=catalogname=jobs > /dev/null

then make a directory etc/jobs put a file in it like

Make a new field in your transactions table like "followupsent" then You
can put some IC code in that file to look up any orders that have been
shipped 7 days ago AND not marked as "followupsent" then have it send a
followup email, then mark the transaction "followupsent" field as true?
