It’s a very simple request. I want to schedule email messages to be sent at a specific time. That’s it. Mail doesn’t do it. The benefit should be obvious. I can create or respond to messages in a batch, but schedule each one to be sent at a time more convenient (to me or the recipient). How do you do that in Mail? You can’t.
But you can do it with Google’s Gmail if you’re using Firefox, Chrome, or Safari.
Schedule Outgoing Gmail With A Click
Here’s how it works. Install the free Boomerang for Gmail plugin on your Mac. Then, when you’re in Safari (or Firefox, or Chrome) and using Gmail, you get another menu selection.
But it gets better. Boomerang for Gmail not only lets you send a Gmail message later, but it has email follow up reminders built-in, too.
This means you can schedule when to follow up on a particular message.
Not bad for free, right?
The negatives? It only works in a browser window, no in Mail.
