There are times I need to censor something I want to forward (easy to do
in CM's text mode) but sometimes forget to remove the HTML version of the
same message which OutLook and others MUAs include...  :P

As in: Configuration->Preferences->Sending->Confirm before sending queued
messages?   :)  At least, I think that does what you suggest...  but not
quite what I'd like:  a minor variation on that option which would
only ask for confirmation of queued messages with attachments:
   Confirm before sending queued messages with attachments

A bonus would list the attachments with remove options to avoid having to
move the message back to drafts, edit, remove, re-send...
