Have the computer with the dBase files run the cronjob and connect to your 
mysql server.

I use email for a lot of things like this. It is good because it handles 
queueing automatically. If a server is down, it will keep trying to send the 
email for whatever the timeout period is (I set mine to a week). Send it and 
forget it. You'll want to encrypt it of course.
