I've got an employee requesting a feature I believe is in Outlook. They say that
they could have a 10 to 30 second delay after they pressed the SEND button
before the client would physically send the mail. It would be stored in the
outbox before sending. Mozilla Mail doesn't have an outbox so, I don't see how
this could easily be added, but this is a unique feature that could be *very*
helpful. Say you forgot to attach a file to a large e-mail. It's embarassing to
send another e-mail with the attachment. Maybe we could get this into 1.8? I'd
really like to have it available in our workplace.
