muttdelay - A bash script to delay mails written via mutt
This is for scheduling the sending of mails for a specific future time.
Unlinke postponing a mail which does not involve the scheduling.
How it works
Do the following:
cp /usr/share/muttdelay/muttdelay.vim ~/.vim/plugin/
echo 'map ,L :call MuttDelay()<CR>' >> ~/.vimrc
And create an hourly cronjob such as:
0 * * * * /usr/bin/muttdelay cron
Configure mutt your way and ensure that you can send mails like this:
mutt -s subject firstname.lastname@example.org < mail.txt
If it works, you can go on.
Open mutt, compose an email. Use Vim as your editor. After finishing
writing your mail don't close Vim, but run
and the mail gets scheduled for sending for a later time. You can now
leave vim without sending the mail via mutt directly.
The mail itself is saved to
The cron job checks if there is any SENDTIMESTAMP lower than the current
unix time stamp. And if so, all matching mails are sent.
