Technical Summary
 
  There is a widely-used feature within the voice messaging community
   to compose and send a message for delivery in the future.  This is
   useful for sending announcements to be heard at the beginning of a
   work day, to send birthday greetings a day or so ahead, or to use as
   a lightweight facility to build a personal reminder service.

   This document describes an extension which e uses the SMTP submission
protocol to allow a client, when submitting a message, to indicate a
future time for the message to be released for delivery.
