How can I restore the command "send later" which you removed in your recent update?

I write my emails and then go to a wi-fi hotspot to send them. Until now I have written them and clicked on "send later" and they have appeared in the Outbox until I logged on and could send them all with one click. The latest update to Thunderbird has removed this facility. How can I restore it, please?

It has not been removed. So clearly, you are seeing something very different from the expected view.

As you have not fully described the issue - what you can or cannot see, I've provided several options. Sometimes, it helps to include an image to give a clear expanation.

If you are not connected to internet or in 'offline mode'. click on 'write' to open a new message. The 'Send Later' button should appear instead of 'SEnd'. It will appear as 'greyed out' until you enter a TO email address at which point it becomes enabled. Logical as you cannot send if no email address is entered. Otherwise it also available under: File > SEnd Later

So when you say The latest update to Thunderbird has removed this facility, it would be useful to know what you mean.

Are you saying: 1. you cannot see any toolbars no 'Menu Bar' = 'File, Edit, view, Insert, Format, Options, Tools, Help If yes: Press 'Alt' key to get a temporary Menu Bar 'View' > 'Toolbars' > select 'Menu Bar' to set permanent. This will get you the 'File' > 'Send Later' menu.

2. You can see 'Menu Bar', but not 'Composition Toolbar' no 'Composition Toolbar' = Send/Send Later, Spelling, Attach, Security, Save 'View' > 'Toolbars' > Select 'Composition Toolbar'

3. You can see the 'Composition Toolbar', all buttons as described are visible except for the 'Send/SendLater' button. 'View' > 'Toolbars' > 'Customise' If the 'Send' icon is in 'Customise' window - drag it onto the 'Composition Toolbar'. OR click on 'Restore Default Set' button click on 'Done' to close window.
