Thunderbird Send later, schedule emails

Sometimes you may want to send an email later, perhaps because you want someone to receive it at a specific time and not earlier, or because you want to avoid overloading your mail server.

The Thunderbird email client does not offer email scheduling options and requires manual workarounds to send emails at a specific time (save as drafts, send when the time is right, or set Thunderbird to offline mode and go online when the time is right). want to send the emails). It doesn’t work all the time as it requires your physical presence.

Enter the Send Later 3 extension for the Thunderbird email client. Send Later does exactly what it’s supposed to do: schedule emails to be sent at a later time. Thunderbird still needs to be open for that, but you no longer need to be present, as the extension sends emails automatically at the selected date and time.

The extension offers you two options. You can use the Send button to display a send menu later in each send, or it can be used through buttons that need to be placed on one of the email client’s available composition toolbars.

The first option must be enabled in the extension settings. The following menu is displayed each time the Send button is activated in Thunderbird.

A right click on the free space in Thunderbird’s typing header and selecting Customize brings up the interface element that can be added to the composition toolbar. This is done by dragging and dropping the set of buttons onto the toolbar.
