How do I schedule emails in Apple Mail and Gmail?

Mailbutler’s Send Later feature for Apple mail and Gmail allows you to write an email now and schedule for it to be delivered at a later desired time.

How to send an email later

  1. In your email, compose a new email.
  2. Click on the button next to the normal Send button to schedule the email.

How does Send Later work?

Mailbutler moves the email to the Scheduled Emails folder on the user’s email server. The email will wait there until the scheduled time. We don’t save the email on our server and don’t send it from our server.

Note

Your scheduled emails will be delivered even if your computer is off at the scheduled time.

Compatibility mode

Email accounts where scheduling fail can be set to run in compatibility mode. If enabled, emails are scheduled locally. Please note that for this work Mail must be kept open on the Mac the email was scheduled from.
