TabSRMM: Send Later: new option - send only when recipient online
Consider next scenario.
There is Jabber server which accept offline messages, but never actually deliver them to the recipient when it becomes online.
Real life example is Google Talk/Hangouts accounts.
Actually I can't force my friends do not use Hangouts...
Sender "S" send offline message to recipient "R" with "Send Later" feature of TabSRMM.
TabSRMM's "Send Later" queues the message and starts trying to send message regardless of recipient status.
So google's server accept that messages and silently drop them if recipient is offline.
To overcome servers that "fools" clients about offline delivery I suggest small option like "Send Later if recipient status is online".
With this option "Send Later" should try to send message to recipient from internal queue only if the status of the recipient is "online".
It automates the manual waiting for the moment the recipient will become online and the actual sending of a message at this moment.
Very good idea!
I have the same wish with Sametime protocol.
Would love to use a sendwhenonline feature in TabSRMM instead of BuddyPounce!
