Send or resend message center notifications to email

Title
Send or resend message center notifications to email

Short, concise description of the idea
Provide a way to send or resend notification emails for events in the Message Center.

Full description of the idea
This was inspired by http://community.livejournal.com/suggestions/790938.html. It is an alternate way to provide the same feature (or a very similar feature), and it also offers additional benefits.

Add an option to the message center that allows sending an email with the same content that a notification email for the same event would have had if sent at the time the event happened, and with the same restrictions.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Same benefits as http://community.livejournal.com/suggestions/790938.html
  • Allows recovering notification emails lost to email problems
  • Keeps notification archival where it belongs, and leaves the notification quota can of worms safely unopened
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Frivolous requests to resend email with no real need to
  • Repeated requests to resend when email is delayed due to temporary congestion, thus possibly making the problem worse
