Have you ever been in a situation when you need to send an email to your client or a friend and you need to send it a very specific time but because of limited Internet use (or maybe you will not be able to be online at that specific time tomorrow), you totally forgot to send it? Don’t you just wish you can schedule your Gmail messages?
Sad to say, there is no Gmail feature that allows you to schedule your messages. But the good news is that there is a free application that you can take advantage of to schedule your email messages and send it when you want it even if you are not online.
You can download Boomerang right in your PC and install this feature directly to your Gmail. Download will take less than a minute and can be done if you are using Google Chrome or a Mozilla Firefox browser. Once you downloaded this add-on, it will appear right at the top right corner of your Gmail ready for you to use.
Aside from scheduling your mail for sending at a later time, it also allows you to postpone receiving messages so they can come out as a new message at your desired time. You can choose options such as send “tomorrow morning” which will send the email at a random time in the morning or set a specific date and time when you want your message to be sent.
The downside of this nifty application is that it is only available with Gmail via Chrome and Firefox. You also need to grant access to your Gmail for Boomerang to work. This simple plug-in is a useful tool for those who needs it and for those who mainly use their email for work correspondence. Give it a try and you might find it features useful too!
