How to Schedule E-Mail Messages to be Sent Later

by Michael on January 26, 2010 · 1 comment

Have you ever wished you could schedule an e-mail message to be sent in the future? I have. And until today, I hadn’t found a good solution. While some local mail clients include this feature, Gmail does not. Moreover, even if your client supports scheduling, you may have to have it open to work.

If you don’t want to mess around with configuring a local client and hoping that you’ll have it open at the right time, then I have a great solution for you… is a free online service that allows you to compose e-mail messages, add attachments, and schedule them to be sent at a future date/time.

Just to be clear, I have no affiliation with LetterMeLater whatsoever. In fact, I just discovered them this morning. However, I’ve tested them out, and their service works exactly as advertised.

One tip: Add a bcc to yourself so you’ll be alerted when the message goes out. Otherwise you have to log back in and check on your message status.

Oh, and if you’d like to see this sort of feature added to Gmail, then please suggest it to them by following this link. Maybe if enough of us ask, they’ll listen.

There’s also a free Chrome extension, Deskun. It also has send later feature.
