Have you determined that your mail server supports that capability? Not all servers do.
(I'm not even sure that any servers I know about do.)
I haven't confirmed that, no, and now that I see it's a proposed standard, not an agreed standard, I may be stuck. I was thinking given the age of the document that there might be some support for it but it looks like I'll have to implement it manually. Thanks anyway.
If the server does not support this capability you could implement manually by storing the email information (to, from, subject, body, etc) in a database along with a "to be sent" time or date.
Then have a process query the DB on a specified time interval and check the "to be sent date/time" for a match, compile the message from the DB fields, send the message, and flag the DB entry as sent.
Not sure it's the best way but would be a quick and dirty way to do it.
Edit: Sorry, didn't see you had already posted you were going to do it manually.

I was trying to avoid the database option. That's my next consideration. Thanks.
