Send Later Version History

69 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 4.4 151.0 KiB Works with SeaMonkey 2.9 - 2.36, Thunderbird 8.0a1 - 36.*

All the shortcut keys in the Send Later prompt window mentioned in the user guide now work in Mac OS, using the Mac OS command key as for other standard Mac OS shortcut keys.

On other platforms (e.g., Windows, Linux), the key for activating shortcuts has changed from Alt to Ctrl.

The Ctrl key is what we should have been using all along, but we were using Alt instead for historical reasons. In order to make shortcuts work on Mac OS, we need to standardize on the "correct" shortcut key on all platforms, hence the change on the other platforms.

Version 4.3.1 151.0 KiB Works with SeaMonkey 2.9 - 2.36, Thunderbird 8.0a1 - 39.0

Fix the accelerator keys for the shortcut buttons, i.e., you can now type Alt-1, Alt-2, or Alt-3 in the Send Later dialog to activate the first, second, or third shortcut button. This has been broken for over two years, but no one reported the problem until recently!

Update the Japanese translation. Thanks, as always, to my awesome translators!

Eliminate some unnecessary error log messages showing up in the error console. If you never look in the Thunderbird error console, this has no impact on you. ;-)

Version 4.3 150.9 KiB Works with SeaMonkey 2.9 - 2.34, Thunderbird 8.0a1 - 37.0

Changes since release 4.2.4:
  • Send Later now warns you on exit if you have pending messages scheduled to be sent, to help you avoid accidentally quitting when you meant to leave the application running so it could send the messages. There is a checkbox in the message you can uncheck if you don't want to be warned again.
  • It is once again possible to use local mailing lists in scheduled messages. This functionality was broken by a recent Thunderbird release but is now fixed.
  • Translation updates. Thank you as always to my translators, including new translator Kari Eveli!
  • More robust performance in foreign languages.
Changes since release 4.2:
  • Scheduled messages are no longer sent repeatedly when the Drafts folder is corrupted. Instead, when Send Later encounters a message in the Drafts folder that it has already sent, it displays an error notifying the user that the Drafts folder needs to be repaired.
  • The X-Enigmail-Draft-Status header is now removed from scheduled messages before they are sent by Send Later.
  • Compatibility with Thunderbird 26+ and Seamonkey 2.23+.
  • Some debug log messages generated by Send Later have been downgraded in priority to make them easier for folks who care about such things to ignore them.

Version 4.2.4 147.5 KiB Works with SeaMonkey 2.9 - 2.32, Thunderbird 8.0a1 - 35.0

Remove the "X-Enigmail-Draft-Status" header before sending a scheduled message.

French and Dutch translation updates. Thanks, as always, to my translators!

Version 4.2.3 147.0 KiB Works with SeaMonkey 2.9 - 2.30, Thunderbird 8.0a1 - 33.0

Add a workaround for a Thunderbird / Postbox bug which occasionally causes Send Later to send messages multiple times.

Version 4.2.2 146.0 KiB Works with SeaMonkey 2.9 - 2.29, Thunderbird 8.0a1 - 32.0

Fix compatibility with old Thunderbird versions. Sorry about that!

Version 4.2.1 146.0 KiB Works with SeaMonkey 2.21a1 - 2.23a1, Thunderbird 24.0a1 - 26.0a1

Compatibility with Thunderbird 26+, SeaMonkey 2.23+.

Dutch and Finnish translation updates (thank you to my translators!). NOTE: I need a new translator for Traditional Chinese (zh-TW). If you're interested in helping out, please let me know (email [email protected])! Thanks!

Fix home page URL.

Version 4.2.0 145.5 KiB Works with SeaMonkey 2.9 - 2.22, Thunderbird 8.0a1 - 25.0

Changes since 4.1.7:

When the user clicks on the "Put in Outbox" button, a warning now pops up explaining what that button does and why the user might actually want to click on the "Send around" button instead. There is a check-box in this pop-up to prevent it from being displayed in the future. The purpose of this new warning is to help alleviate the confusion from which some users suffer about which button to click to schedule a message.

New Armenian translation. Thanks to HrantOhanyan from BabelZilla!

Version 3.3.10 97.0 KiB Works with Thunderbird 2.0 - 14.*


The next version to be released after this one will include significant new functionality which cannot be implemented within Thunderbird 2 or Postbox 2. Users who do not wish to upgrade to a newer version of Thunderbird or Postbox may continue to use this version as-is, but there will be no further bug-fix or feature releases compatible with Thunderbird 2 or Postbox 2.
