a welcome feature would be the ability to delay (on a per-message basis) when a message should be sent, until a particular date

Reproducible: Always




When I switched from Eudora to Thunderbird, the one feature that I missed, and still miss, is the ability to queue a message send later -- not like the Thunderbird "File: Send Later" which just asks the user about sending it the next time the program is opened; but instead the ability to specify that a particular message should be sent on/after a specific date in the future.

I used this feature for years in Eudora to basically send myself little reminders in the future.  This sounds a bit abstract, but it basically meant I didn't ever have to use a separate "datebook" program for reminders; and I'm not the only one to note the usefulness of this:  see http://mailtothefuture.com, http://futuremail.bensinclair.com, and http://futureme.org

Pretty please add this feature to Thunderbird and I'll sign your yearbook and be your best friend forevah!
