There is a hidden preference to enable this.  In Terminal, write:

defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmSendMessageDelayEnabled -bool YES

and then again:

defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmSendMessageDelay -integer 300

for an automatic delay of 300 seconds.

It keeps me from forgetting something obvious…I have mine set at 45 seconds because usually I remember what I should have said just as I am hitting ’Send’.  If I have it set as long as 5 minutes, I get impatient for it to send and end up using the key sequence to send immediately, thereby overriding the ‘Send Later’ that I put in place.  :-)
