I’m a regular Gmail users and I miss there is no default feature to schedule Email in Gmail. Here I’m talking about an E-mail service LetterMeLater (Letter-Me-Later), as name suggests let you schedule Email for future dates.
Scheduling Emails for future is a very useful feature that anyone would like to use. It can help us in multiple ways. There are many circumstances in which we can utilize Email Scheduling.
Here are some examples of such situations:
- You are working on some project and want to send an alert to your client at 01.00 P,M. tomorrow. But you can’t access the internet at that time and thus want to schedule the message before itself.
- You use email to upload photos to your Flickr, Facebook or TwitPic. You want to schedule the upload process by sending a scheduled email to your Flickr, Facebook or TwitPic account.
- You are sending scheduled email to yourself as a reminder about any task to be done.
How to Schedule Emails using LetterMeLater service:
LetterMeLater is a free email scheduling service. This service has the very best feature that our regular email program doesn’t have – the ability to schedule e-mail. It means you can write emails now and have them sent to anyone at any time in future (after one week, or after one month, or even after 10 years!). I use it frequently for sending emails to myself as a reminder of tasks to be done in future.
Scheduling email is very simple.Go to LetterMeLater , sign up with your name&email ID ,click the verification mail you receive, Compose the mail, Set date and time you wish and then click schedule to send . That’s it.Your email will be scheduled. When the date and time of the email arrives ,it will be automatically delivered to recipients.
Another very good feature I found at LetterMeLater is that you can send scheduled e-mails from your own email program (Gmail, yahoo, etc.).
How to schedule Email in Gmail:
To schedule email from your email program such as Gmail, first you must be a registered member of LetterMeLater. Send an email to Me [at] LetterMeLater [dot] com, in the following format:
when: date(s) to send – semicolon delimited for recurring emails
options: any of these options: reminder, hidden, html
(only to: and when: are required.)
