Reschedule it by choosing between one of the 3 options. To save the rescheduling of your email, click confirm.

You can disable the scheduling of your email or reschedule them.

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.

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 nor do we send it from there.
