The one app I consider indispensible Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Should be called the Oh Crap saver. If I could I would take jikamens out to lunch. I absolutely love this app. The best part is that unlike boomerang which creates a separate Send Later button, Jikamens incorporated it into the Send button, This forces me to choose between a delayed send or send immediately. The extra click is well worth it. With other send later apps, I mindlessly click Send and am screwed. The other thing I like is the three user defined options. Gmail has one option and only delays up to 30 sec. My brain kicks in around 60 seconds and it is too late. I have mine set for 2, 15, and 60 min. Perfect. Thank you! This app has saved my bacon several times.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2.1). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Einfach klasse Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Einfach klasse. Wenn ich Mails nicht direkt versenden will, hilft mir dieses Plugin perfekt. Ich kann Versanddaten frei definieren oder über definierbare Buttons zeitverzögert versenden. Hilft mir sehr.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2.1). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Very good addon, but why don't you use a button ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Good addon, but I suggest to implement a button to display the Send Later window (otherwise we have to go to File > Send Later to display it).
For the moment, I use the "Send Later Button", but it would be best if it were integrated.
Just What I Was Looking For Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you so much for this - I use it to send out birthday wishes to all my clients on their birthdays. It's awesome!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2).
Essential functionality, done perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Excellent UI, and it works reliably... terribly important functionality to have in Thunderbird for strategically sending emails.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Oops, it's just got slightly less useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I've been using send later to send emails I've written at weird and wonderful hours so that the intended recipients don't think I'm a vampire - the intention being that the mail is delivered during 'reasonable hours'. In that respect, I can't fault it....
The most recent update this week has mad a minor change to how stuff sitting in the draft box waiting to be sent later appears - it used to be EMBOLDENED (so someone like me could see and be reminded there's something sitting in it waiting to go)... The EMBOLDENED drafts folder and indeed messages sitting within it have now been switched off and it's a small pain...
Yes, the program still works and sends later as intended BUT because I now can't see that the DRAFTS folder is in BOLD typeface (like UNREAD elsewhere in T'Bird), I have found that I keep going back to check the drafts folder asking myself 'did I send [for later], did I send [for later]'. Clearly, this is a loss of functionality and is inadvertently consuming my time because I feel I need to keep looking there to make sure I've not forgotten to schedule an email to be sent later !!!
PLEASE *Switch this back on again in the next update* If other people have specifically asked for this to be switched off, then please have something like "leave pending to be sent messages and Drafts folder IN BOLD" as an option.
I am driving myself nut meanwhile checking back again and again asking myself "Did I click to send that later or not".
Best wishes though - it is a good program!
Added preference for this in new beta release
Thanks for your feedback!
It honestly hadn't occurred to me that some people might have _liked_ the fact that scheduled drafts are marked unread in the drafts folder. I've gotten a lot of feedback over the years from people who didn't like it. But of course the people who did like that behavior had no reason to contact me because it was working how they wanted it to. ;-)
I've just released a new beta release with a new preference to control this functionality. The behavior of marking drafts read is enabled by default since I still believe that's what more users will want, but you can turn off the preference if you'd like scheduled drafts to remain marked unread.
You can try out the beta release by downloading it from https://addons.mozilla.org/thunderbird/addon/send-later-3/versions/6.2.1beta1 , or you can wait a week or so until I release the new functionality to everyone (after some time for my beta testers and translators get a crack at it) and you'll get the update automatically.
Note that if you install the beta release, you'll be on the "beta track" moving forward and you'll get subsequent beta releases automatically, so if you don't want that, then after the feature is generally released you'll want to download the newest non-beta version and install that to switch off of the beta channel.
Thanks again for your feedback!
Does exactly what it says Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I don't have much need to use this functionality in Thunderbird, which is mostly used for personal email, but the few times I've needed it Send Later has worked perfectly and I was grateful to have it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2).
Great tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Makes organizing my communication a lot easier.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2).
Great tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Gives you the opportunity to send mails when you want (eg in 2 hours). It has helped me a lot in some situationsThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2).
This add-on has made my life much easier Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This add-on has become indispensable at work. Emails that must be sent regularly throughout the week can be scheduled immediately or several at one time. The add-on will send them when needed, relieving me from waiting to send emails and thus freeing my mind to do other things. I am extremely grateful for the existence of this program.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2).
Great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have been using this for more than several years and it is a great addition. I contributed to the developer because it is so useful.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2).
Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Does the job as advertised ... and in a nice way.
I am not using it often but it's handy to be able to write an e-mail now, and to program the time it will be sent (next day first thing in the morning, for instance).
What a great plugin! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have orders I need to send in to the manufacturer at a specific time on only certain days during the week. As I work from home and my schedule is erratic (on a good day :-) I was constantly missing my window of opportunity which meant delayed fulfillment of orders.
With this plugin I just set it and forget it! I open it, add new orders, set the day and schedule for when it needs to send. I have more orders, just open the draft, add more, and hit the schedule save again and I'm done. I haven't had a delayed order in literally months now... no matter what my day/night has been like.
It also reminds you there are emails that are scheduled when you close Thunderbird so I know to keep it open.
Thank you so much for this!
Lacking the option to send tomorrow morning Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It would be perfect if we could set a default time to be sent the next day (extra/new option: Tomorrow), so that we can schedule emails going out in the morning the day after a holiday, for example. But in general I would like to be able to set a date/timestamp as a default, and then have the option to override or confirm it each time.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.1.2).
You can do all that
You can do all of that already. Please see the user guide. https://blog.kamens.us/send-later/
Excellent Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a great add-on -- well designed, and easy to use. I've been using this on a daily basis for many months now, and would recommend it to anyone using Thunderbird. Also, the developer was extremely helpful and responded very quickly to a question I had. Highly recommended!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.1.2).
Follow-up to Send Later Problem Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I was trying to be nice b/c I do like the concept and it apparently works really well on other platforms. In addition, I think developers of free add-ons should be given lots of emotional support since the pecuniary rewards may be few and far between.
That said, your response to my comment was remarkably tone-deaf. Instead of acknowledging that immediately after I installed your add-on my system began to freeze/hang and that the problem stopped as soon as I removed it, you flat-out insisted the add-on couldn't be the cause of the problem. You recommend a fix, good. But you could have done so without denying that the problem I described was secondary to installation of the add-on. I hope and trust you will take this suggestion in the supportive spirit in which it is offered.
Does its job well Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works as promised, with no significant bugs found on our end just yet. Great for when you want to reach clients first thing in the morning but want to prep the email the night before.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.1).

Fantastic! (+small bug to fix) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you for this fantastic add-on! This functionality is extremely useful, and I've been looking for it for very long on Thunderbird!
I have noticed something I find a bit problematic. When you accidentally select a date and hour which are not in the future but in the past, the email is sent immediately. I think you should add a warning message pointing out that the user probably mispecified the date and time he wanted for the dispatch.
EDIT: Thanks for your quick reply!
That's a good idea. I'll add it to my to-do list to be implemented as time permits.
