I got a reply off-list, that my answer should be off-topic, so I guess
I need to explain more detailed.

Once a mail e.g. is saved as draft, it's possible to get the complete
mail by an action.

Selecting a mail and applying an action with the %f variable could save
the mail ready to send by the msmtp command and e.g. add a cron job.
This requires a short script.

Yes, Claws doesn't provide an option by default, but my guess is, that
giving the hint, how to solve this issue using Claws features isn't

Since I'm short in time, I don't provide a scrip, but hopefully this
hint is helpful.
