By snoozing emails in Outlook and Apple Mail, you can hide emails from your inbox for a set period of time. This is useful if you don’t have time to read a message yet, or if the email contains a task which doesn’t require immediate attention. Once the Snooze time runs out, the email will automatically return to the top of your inbox.

FAQs

How do you snooze in Apple Mail?

Snoozing emails in Apple Mail is easy with Mailbutler. After downloading Mailbutler, whenever you have a message selected, there will be a small button with a crescent moon and a star next to it. This is your snooze button! When you click it, you can decide how long to snooze your email for. It will be kept in a Snoozed folder which you can access at any time, and returned to your inbox after the time has elapsed. It’s as easy as that.


How to snooze emails in Outlook

Snoozing emails in Outlook is as easy as it is in any other email client. After you’ve signed into Mailbutler, on any selected message, you’ll see three little dots next to the forward button. Click here, navigate to Mailbutler, and click on snooze – and that’s it!


What happens to my email when I snooze it?

After you snooze your email with Mailbutler, it will be sent to a dedicated Snoozed folder. This contains all your snoozed emails so you always have an overview of all your messages.


Can I manually unsnooze an email?

Of course! Navigate to your Snoozed folder in your email client; from here, you can click on the rising sun button which has replaced the snooze button. Your snoozed message will be returned to your inbox and you can work on it as you normally would.


Does the sender realize I snoozed their email?

The sender will never know you’ve snoozed their email. They aren’t sent any notifications about whether their recipient uses the snooze button, and all your information is totally safe and private with Mailbutler. However, if they’re using Mailbutler, they will be able to use our Email Tracking feature to know whether their email was opened!


Why should I use the Snooze feature?

The Mailbutler Snooze feature helps you to take away some of the stress of emailing. It allows you to hide emails from your inbox, meaning they are also psychologically hidden away, and retrieve them at a specific time – i.e., a time you think you will have a moment to respond to and organize them! One of the best ways of using Snooze is to keep a block of time free during your working day to sort out your messages. That way, you can forget about your emails for the rest of the day, using the Snooze feature to remove them from your inbox, and focus on the work that really matters. Then, when the time comes, you can sort out all your emails in one go, saving you time and stress.
