"Send later" for messages

Expected behavior

I can schedule a message to be sent at a specified time in the future, either to myself (great for reminders) or others.

Actual behavior

N/A … only Send immediately

not sure how we can get this reliable timing wise, because we already have background problems with the OS killing DeltaChat at will while it’s in the background.
Also I think this would be a client side thing, so the device needs to be somehow online/active at the time it should be send.

So cool Idea, though I see some technical challenges depending on the expected form of the feature, could be that there are some compromises/alternate methods that could already get us 80% there.
