I'm using jikamens' Send Later 4.1.6 plugin for Thunderbird 17.0.3 (for Mac) and I am looking for a smart way to add an additional parameter to the send later command.

I would like to ad the condition that the send later be canceled - with a notice - if I in-between having written my email and stored it to be send later receive an email from this particular person.

Say I get and email from x and I reply with a 3 days delay using the send later, after 48 hours I receive an new email from x that I do not see or reply to before my initial send later email is sent.

Is there a solution to this? I would also be willing to consider alternative email software.

I have no idea, but I would recommend looking into additional plugins or rules for incoming mail to match up the email address of the inbound to the outbound and delete on a match rather than somehow adjusting 'send later' – Simkill Mar 12 '13 at 15:27
@Simkill, thank you for commenting on my question and thanks for your suggestion. – Eric Fail Mar 12 '13 at 15:35

I got an alternative for you. Schedulemailer sends your emails directly at your chosen point in the future. Here's the link: and there's also a video on youtube: Hope I could help you!

Thank you for responding to my question. I'm not sure what I get by using Schedulemailer that I don't have by using Send Later 4.1.6 plugin. Could you expand on your answer? – Eric Fail Mar 20 '13 at 17:58
