    Default Deyal Sending a Email

    Would it be possible to include something that would deyal sending an email. When I send an email to someone in a different timezone I rather have them receive it in the morning instead of late a night.

    Well, if you want to add a feature then file an RFE in bugzilla - don't forget to vote on it.

    My opinion, FWIW, is that it's not worth bothering about, sending mail to different timezones shouldn't be a problem for you or the recipient. I don't see what difference it makes when they receive the mail.

    this is a valuable 'enterprise' feature - it's used in outlook in larger companies quite a lot, as if you send the email the previous night it often gets lost forever.

    Really, I'm glad you enlightened me about that. Because it's an 'enterprise' feature doesn't make it worthwhile, I send mail around many time zones and have done for a number of years, 'getting lost' because they arrive in the evening is never an excuse I've heard.

    It 'get's lost', how?

    sigh. if you have thousands of people in your department, and you receive thousands of emails a day, even with the best effort filters setup you still often end up with an inbox that's too large to manage. common response in this scenario is to simply go through and delete anything that's not important very quickly, or i often see people just block delete large time chunks of email. emails get missed/deleted. if i work at night or over the weekend i've learnt to delay sending important emails until next business morning where they have a far higher chance of actually being read.
