    Mailbutler’s Send Later feature is beneficial in more ways than one. It helps you, a salesperson, to understand how to use the feature, stay productive, and reclaim more free time. Once you've tried to schedule emails, you won’t want to do without this feature.

    Sending messages outside of business hours

    There is one last email that you need to send. You want to remove it from your to-do list, but you didn’t have time until now. Finally, you’ve finished writing and are about to hit the “send” button. Then you notice the time: It’s way past business hours.

    Sending a message this late, to someone who may have their email provider connected through their phone, would probably disturb them during their private life.

    You don’t want to seem unprofessional and intrude.

    You also know that you might forget to send the message in the morning.

    Even if you are ready by tomorrow, your email may be skipped, because your customer received other emails.

    It will cause your message to be pushed further into your inbox. Even though you worked late into the night,  the other messages will have priority.

    Make a schedule for your computer to do the work

    Mailbutler’s Send Later feature for Apple Mail, Outlook and Gmail, allows you to schedule your emails to be sent later. This enables you to shape your day in any way you like:

    • Write emails when you are productive and have Mailbutler automatically send them when you want.
    • By pressing the Send Later button when you finish your work, not when you need to send the note.
    • Send emails to people when you think they are most productive and likely to answer you.
    • Maintain your professionalism with good time management and respect for boundaries.

    On top of this, Send Later has two other smart functionalities. It can cancel a scheduled email if your recipient sends you a message, and it can automatically reschedule your email to be sent the next day if you try and send it outside of your working hours.

    Smart Send Later

    Schedule emails seamlessly on Gmail, Outlook or Apple Mail. Integrated directly into your inbox.

    Why the Send Later feature is great for emailing clients

    • They won’t wake up and feel the need to reply in the middle of the night. 
    • You won’t remind them of work during their free time.
    • People are more likely to take their time reading their emails in the morning.

    Try out Mailbutler's Send Later feature

    You can see that the Send Later feature will have a positive impact not only on your productivity but also on the productivity of the people around you. Try it out and install Mailbutler for Apple Mail, Outlook or Gmail.


    Can you schedule a time for an email to be sent?

    Yes, you can. If you use Gmail, Outlook, or Apple Mail, you can integrate Mailbutler directly into your inbox and take advantage of its Send Later feature.

    This feature allows you to compose your email now and send it at a specific time in the future.

    Mailbutler also lets you optimize the delivery time of your email based on the tracking history it collects for the email address in question with its feature Recipient Optimized Scheduling.

    How do I schedule a recurring email?

    It depends on the email client you use. For example, if you have a Gmail account, you won’t be able to set up a recurring email without using a third-party tool as Gmail doesn’t have any built-in features that allow for this action.

    Can I schedule an email to send the next day in Outlook?

    Yes, you can. Here are the steps you need to follow:

    • Compose the email message
    • Go to Options, then click on More Options and select Delay Delivery
    • Under Properties, click on Do not deliver before and pick a date and time to send the email
    • Go back to the email and select Send

    Unfortunately, this feature works only when Outlook is connected to the internet.

    If you install Mailbutler, the powerful email extension designed for Outlook, Gmail, and Apple Mail, you’ll be able to schedule emails for the next day or any other time in the future without having to be online when the email delivery time comes.

    Can you schedule an email in Apple Mail?

    Yes, you can. With Mailbutler integrated directly into your Apple Mail inbox, you’ll be able to schedule emails using the send later feature. Here’s how:

    1. Log into your Apple Mail account
    2. Write the email you want to send later
    3. Click on the Send Later icon above the To: field
    4. Specify when you want the email to be sent (date and time)
