Sending later without a date spec doesn't roll over the day

Reported by Timothy Brown | December 12th, 2013 @ 02:33 AM

When I type 4:03am in "Send Later" but it is currently 9:00pm on my machine, I want MailMate to roll the 4:03am over to the next day. It seems as if it does it on the same day (having the result of sending the message immediately). It doesn't put the messages in drafts as it's supposed to.

    • State changed from “new” to “accepted”

    It makes sense that MailMate should always try to put the date in the future. Thanks for the feedback.

    Hey there, I stumbled over this one, too. I would almost go as far to call it a bug. Tried to schedule an email to 6:00 for the following day, but mailmate directly sent it. In the meantime "tomorrow 6:00" works. But changing the semantics of "6:00" to "6:00 in the future" would be appreciated. :)

    Unfortunately, it is surprisingly tricky to fix properly. I use Apple's code to interpret the string and therefore all I know is the resulting time. If this time is before “now” then I should add 12 or 24 hours, but this is hard to determine without also analyzing the string myself.

    But I also think of it more like a bug than a feature.
