An email is an immediate form of communication, but you do not have to send the emails you compose as soon as you write them. Scheduling your emails allows you to compose messages on your own time and at your own pace. We like this when we’re getting things done after work hours and want to save our reply for the morning.
To schedule an email, compose your message as usual. Then instead of clicking the blue Send button, click the arrow right next to it. A text link will pop up saying Schedule send. Click the text.
A window will open, prompting you to choose the date and time you want your email to go out. You may use the dates and times suggested by the program or go to the bottom of the list to schedule your own.
