Sometimes I would like a message to be delayed until tomorrow, next week, or some time next year. I can’t find how to induce POSTBOX2 to do that for me. I know it’s in Outlook. How does a POSTBOX2 User do that?
It would be really nice if POSTBOX2 would handle that very smartly (i.e., wake up when a deferred request triggers and send it) but I could even live with it doing it the next time it is “alive”.

Postbox has a “Send Later” feature, but without scheduling.
If you don’t mind, please submit a request for scheduling in the Ideas & Feature Requests Forum so we can keep track of it.
Thanks for using postbox!

(1) This seems to me to be an OBVIOUSLY needed feature. OUTLOOK does it; I’m no MICROSOFT fan, but they have certain features. It just WINDOZE that sucks.
(2) WINDOZE may suck; MACOSX has its problems too. The question is how much suckiness will you the User tolerate. If you do a real good job of separating your data, your applications, and the OS on a WINDOZE platform, AND IF you do a real good job of managing your WINDOZE OS — slipstreaming fixes into a WINDOZE DISKIMAGE (by like ACRONIS) so you can bare metal restore at the drop of a hat, I’d give the nod to WINDOZE over MACOSX. On to Linux anyone?
(3) The meme of “personal computing” is that you can have your little PLATFORM and it’s “personal”. The new meme of “cloud computing” is nice if you never leave home and you high speed connection to the inet never fails. Once you leave home or if your inet provider is flaky, then cloud computing is challenging at best. Wifi ain’t that ubiquitous or that “free”. If you use the phone as you’re inet gateway, you’re stuck with an expensive “data plan” and find out that “unlimited” doesn’t mean “unlimited”.
(4) Clearly, the applications developers have to design applications that can work either with or without the cloud. I haven’t seen one yet that does.
(5) The regulators are back in 1910 and are (deliberately?) clueless about how companies are ripping the folks off.
(6) I love how developers want the Users to do their work for them. Assuming that “scheduled send” is a valid useful “new idea”. Why ask me, the User, to do your data entry work? That’s down right rude. Do I get paid, or anything, to be your R&D staff? It’s not like this is Open Source Software, where there’s more of a collaboration between developer and User. Argh!
(7) Many enterprises treat the Customer like they are an unpaid staff. The cable and telephone companies come to mind. I may have no choice but to put up your “barbara streisand” now, but there will come a time. Payback is a bitch!
