Sure no, but hell, the machines and the network are faster and faster. Are
you going to improve your reaction day after day to always be fast enough
to click on the "fix my mistake" button ?

"Offline mode" is a way to work without claws initiating POP3/IMAP/...
fetchs, that's all. If you hit "Send" when connected, best is to think
twice... or maybe have some extra-new option that would say :
"When I say 'Send mail', I really mean 'Queue and send later so that I can
think twice'..."

Pierre, as the OP, would that be a valid option for you ?
