I've been using it pretty much forever. It does its job well, for all

CTRL-O postpones a message. To get back to postponed messages, you can
either go to the folders list and select "postponed-msgs" or you just
invoke the Compose command and it asks if you want to continue a postponed
message. Answer 'Y' and the list of postponed messages pops up. You
select the one you want and it comes back just where you left off. I have
about 7 postponed messages that have been there for months now ;(
