User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.7.1 final

Thunderbird should ask to send unsent messages when the user closes the application.

It is easy to use the Send Later function and forget that the messages haven't
been sent. A prompt to send the messages when closing the application would be
better than a prompt to send the messages the next time the application is
started, since the mail would get to the intended recipient sooner.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compose a message and Send Later.
2. Exit Thunderbird.

Actual Results:  
The user is not prompted to send unsent messages until Thunderbird is restarted.

Expected Results:  
The user is asked to send unsent messages now. If the user says no, he or she
should be asked again the next time they start Thunderbird (unless they disable
this feature).

This feature is present in some other mail clients, such as Pegasus Mail.

See bug 115024, I guess Mozilla MailNews and Thunderbird use the same code for
this feature, so we could mark it as a duplicate. 
Comments #19 and #20 in that bug show the current status.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

This bug has been automatically resolved after a period of inactivity (see above
comment). If anyone thinks this is incorrect, they should feel free to reopen it.
