I wanted to know if there is a way in Apple mail which will delay sending mail for some time. Say I have composed a message today but I want to send that email tomorrow afternoon. Is there some way or some plugin with which I can do this ?


Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    Just leave it as a draft until you are ready to send it.

    I think you are looking for more of an auto-send, than what the previous user suggested. I am not sure if Mac can do this, but if you Google "send e-mail at specific time", there are many programs that will allow you to do this. I know that some of them will interface with Outlook, and Entourage, so if you are sending the Mac e-mail through Entourage, you should be able to find the right free software.

    FYI. There are also services that allow you to do this with a text.

    This was one of the best features of Eudora. I could queue reminders to myself that would send themselves days, weeks, or months later. They would show up in my inbox the day I needed to be reminded. Likewise, if I want someone else to get a reminder from me the day before they have to do something, I don't have to remember it myself, I just queue the thing now to self-send then. I miss this. Mail should add it. Keeping drafts is no substitute for this feature.
