Is it possible to schedule a message for future delivery in I know this is possible in Outlook, in Thunderbird, and through several external apps.

Can do this, too?

There are some AppleScripts using iCal to schedule mails. I've not tested this, but the latest version is from May 2010, so theres a chance these may still work.

I gave these a shot and they seem to be a good solution. Thanks! – user84484 Jul 8 '11 at 19:42
Possibly dumb question - has to be running for these scripts to send mail at the appointed time, correct? I can't schedule something for 2AM and put my computer to sleep over night, can I? – user84484 Jul 8 '11 at 20:49
I don't know, sorry. – trurl Jul 8 '11 at 21:01
