Think about this situation. You want to send an email you’ve just composed but you don’t want to send it now. Instead, you’d rather send the email at another time. How can you do that using Apple’s built-in Mail app?
Send. Mail. Later.
Mail has a built-in Draft function, so you can write an email message, and save it to be sent later, but Mail won’t send it out automatically. It’s still a manual send.
Add the SendLater plugin to Mail and you get a second Send button, one that pops down a scheduler, so you can set exactly when the message will be sent.
That’s correct. SendLater sends the message when you want, even if you’re not there to click the Send button.
It’s automatic. Your Mac simply needs to be running, Mail needs to be open, and there’s a connection to the internet.
SendLater does a great job of letting others know you’re not available at all hours. Email messages are sent only when you want them to be sent, even if you’re not in front of your Mac.
Nothing could be easier to use, either. Click the Send This Email Later button (it’s installed right next to the Send button arrow).
The pop down window gives you options to send the message at a specific date and time, or simple x-number of hours in the future. That’s all there is to it. As long as your Mac and Mail are running and you have an internet connection, the email message gets sent according to the scheduled time.
