    What is the "sane" reason why Outlook keeps a delayed-send email in my local Outbox instead of on the server?

    Depends if you're in Cached Modus or Online Modus. In Online Modus it is kept on the server. But yeah, makes no sense.

    SMTP itself and thus Exchange doesn't have functionality for delayed send. So that ability was created purely in the Outlook client, which is why the application has to be running for it to work. I don't know what MS does to make it work for O365 accounts through the web interface front end (or Outlook in online mode), but it's not a general thing they implemented as their outlook.com email accounts don't have delayed send functionality either.

    I've been writing Powershell scripts to run jobs in our business automation systems, building them to return JSON output, and then passing that JSON output over to other automation systems.

    This feels like programming.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    5 years from now, you will get a call at 3 am. Someone at your old job has made a change, and now one of your automation scripts broke. Nobody's done the process manually for 5 years, and now nobody knows how to do it and they're panicing.

    And that's when you get to charge $500/hr consulting fees!

    I'm scared to say this in the programming threads, but I actually like microservices.

    Maybe cause I come from IT land so undocumented operational issues don't bother me anywhere near as much as undocumented piles of code.

    Oh they're fine when done right, it's just you often have devs who think functions=individual services rather than thinking through what the service mix should be for the application function and where you want your integration breaks to be.

    Coincidentally, I just looked up an old website I developed back in 2012 or so (and was still live several months ago) and just found that the company completely replaced it with a turnkey solution. (Kind of like Squarespace, but more specific for their industry, and more sophisticated with online job applications and such.)

    I'm slightly sad but they literally did nothing to maintain the content or design of the old site, so I'm not that sad. I'm also not at all surprised.
