Send Later is available for Gmail, Apple Mail and Outlook. Install Mailbutler now and start scheduling emails right away!


Note
: The Send Later Feature should not be used to create email blasts or campaigns. Scheduling large batches of emails (more than 100) can result in a failure to send. This limit is due to most users’ servers, not because of Mailbutler.

How does Send Later work?

Mailbutler moves the email to the Scheduled Emails folder on the user's email server. The email will stay there until the scheduled time. We don’t save the email on our server nor do we send it from there.
