Have you ever composed or replied to an email message and wish there was a way to send it later rather than send it now? Think about how handy that could be. Instead of responding to email at all hours, thereby inviting co-workers or friends to assume you’re home or at work or always available, send the email at a specific time.
Apple’s Mail app doesn’t do that. Click send, and the message gets sent. Sure, you can save a message as a Draft and send it later, but that’s a manual process subject to memory. If you want to send email later here’s how.
What it does is what you expect. Instead of clicking the Send button to send a message immediately, SendLater gives you another option. Send later.
Click the Send Later button and you get a pop down pane with more options. Set a Special Date and time. Or, set Time Distance in x-number of minutes or hours from now. Or, set a Time and Date numerically.
Then click the Send Later button. Mail holds onto your message until the specified time and date, then sends the message. SendLater is a Mail plugin so installation is a breeze. Of course, your Mac needs to be connected to the internet and running when you’ve scheduled the message to be sent.
No longer will you need to worry about sending email when your forced to. Let SendLater send it later.
One more thing. The only issue I have with Mail plugins is whenever Apple upgrades OS X’s Mail app. That always seems to cause plugins to stop functioning until the developer updates the plugin. If that ever causes a problem for you, try the free MailPLuginFix utility.
