Send Later Agent is an akonadi agent which allows you to send scheduled mails once or repeatedly.
Use → in KMail's composer window to open a dialog which allows you to schedule your emails to send at a specific date and time.
Say you have constructed a brilliant email outlining tasks you wish your employees to complete while you are at the conference, but you will be on an airplane when you wish the email to be sent. Use this feature to send the email at a precise date and time. To schedule the email to send later, first check the Delay box and then select the date and time on the Send at: menu.
If you need to send a weekly reminder email to your employees, you can configure it to repeat sending the message by checking Repeat every checkbox and selecting the desired intervals.
You can put the message in your queued messages by selecting the button to schedule the message immediately.
This agent works independent from KMail and does not need a running KMail instance or KMail being in online mode to send scheduled emails.
If you have no network connection when a scheduled message should be sent, the agent will report an error and ask if you want to resend it later.
At login to a KDE session the agent checks the scheduled messages and sends all messages overdue since the last logout if necessary.
To change the options for emails you have scheduled to send later, use → then select the Plugins page in KMail and press the configuration button against the Send Later Agent item.
This brings up a dialog that allows you to modify the schedule and remove emails that have been sent using the send later feature.
It is not possible to change the content (body, headers etc.) of a scheduled message.
