    How to get email to send after writing an email with no wifi available

      Hi,

       

      Here's my question/problem. If I write an email where I don't have wifi available (it would be nice to have an option to save it as draft!) and hit SEND, it goes to the outbox. Now, when I do have wifi available, how do I get it to actually send? I refresh, I go to the outbox and refresh, and sometime later, it may or may not go on it's own. How can I reliably get the email to go when I want it to?

       

      Thanks.

       

      And an add-on. Is ther anyway to tell when new apps get added to the Nook app store? I have a hard enough time trying to find an app, I certainly can't figure out how to tell when new ones get added.

       

      I love reading on my Nook, just wish I could squeeze out some more uses!

          I don't know about the email, but as to the aps, no there apparently isn't a way to sort by newest date. It would be nice if there were. There is a thread where someone started a spreadsheet either here or on the general NC board.

            I had the same problem. This workaround seems to work for me, but it does take some extra steps: 

             

            1. Go to Outbox and open the message.

            2. Click the Move To button at the bottom of the screen.

            3. Move the message to the Drafts folder.

            4. Change to the Drafts folder and open the message you just sent there.

            5. You should now see a Send button. If you're connected to wi-fi and click this button, the message should now send.

             

            If you happen to click Send while there's no wi-fi (as I've sometimes stupidly done when I've forgotten to start the wi-fi), don't worry; the message will just move back to the Outbox. You can start wi-fi, then follow the steps above to move the message to Drafts and send it. 

             

            I hope this works for you. I know it would be easier for us if we could just open the message in Outbox and have a Send key appear. Maybe in 1.3...
