How to Schedule your Emails (and more!)

by Mama Chocolate on January 2, 2012

Have you ever written an email in advance, saved it in your drafts to send later, and then forgotten it?

I always wanted to write emails in advance, but knew my scattered, flighty brain better than to think that I would ever remember to go back to the drafts folder at the right time to actually click “send.”

A few months ago, I discovered Boomerang, a tool for Gmail users to schedule emails and set reminders to deal with an email again according to certain criteria.


If you’re already using Gmail, this feature is super easy and quick to install, and you’ll be wishing you had it months ago!


(If you aren’t using Gmail, what’s wrong with you? Get your head checked and get back to me on that. No, but seriously: if you like a different email program better, I’d love to know why, because I love Gmail, and can’t imagine a better program to manage my emails.)
