How To Send Emails At A Specified Time In Mozilla Thunderbird

I prefer using Linux over Windows. I even use it on my work computer, and my preferred email client is Mozilla Thunderbird.

Well the other day I wanted to have an email send out at a specified time (Don't ask me why) and I knew I could do it in Microsoft Outlook, but I didn't have that. I had Thunderbird, and it doesn't have that functionality built in.

That's ok, because like just about anything else with Thunderbird, there is a plugin for it! The plugin I found that you can use to delay sending an email is called Send Later.

To schedule what time your email sends, draft and email like usual; then with the cursor in the message area press CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER and the Send Later dialogue box pops up where you can schedule what time your email will send.

Once your email is scheduled, Send later will save it to your drafts folder until it is ready to send. It works like... well, like clockwork!

Do you ever have to schedule messages? Do you use Thunderbird too? do you use a different plugin? If so, which one? Let us know in the comments!
