Hello,

I am very impulsive and I often regret to send some emails after few minutes.

How can I pose a delay before sending any email?

I explored one addon in the past that supposedly did that, but it didn't work.

Any hint?

Ofcourse not, it's irrelevant

Can you implement gmail settings in Thunderbird? Isn't Unsend an event that would occur after an email was sent? I read the question as a delay rather than an undo/unsend task.

To execute the unsend -- do you have to go into gmail and unsend?

OK I got the Send Later addon but it I click to save 15min delay as default, but it keeps asking me each time, is there a fix?

I'm working on an addon -- DoWhatIThink.xpi -- but I've got a long ways to go :)
Sorryl...that was with a little sarcasm.


What do you want it to do?

-- Do you want it to send the mail without prompting you after the time delay?
-- Does it prompt you when there is no mail to send?

It if isn't right I'd suggest you contact the developer and share your thoughts with him.
