Resend is not an obscure, random, expert-user command; it just happens to

Didn't discover resend until last year. Woa was I foolish. Didn't even
know it with my client nor that it was something one could do.
If I had to edit a text file to enable that option I would, but I'd prefer
to see it in a preferences dialog box. Whether you consider resend to be
part of the program or not is irrelevant. I'm saying that people use it
all the time and it should be there, whether or not you prefer it.
Users will always click on the "expert" feature. No one walks around
saying, "Hi, I'm a newbie. I don't know what the hell I'm doing. Please
software, don't give me the other options that are grayed out in the menus
and preference boxes because I'm a twit who just doesn't get it." Really.
One of the most annoying UI elements is a grayed out checkbox/menu item.
It's like a huge taunt. Nyah nyah. You can't turn me on.
If such an option were disabled, I wouldn't expect it to appear as a
button or in a menu at all.
