Web based service Deferred Sender lets you defer sending an email to a later time. In other words, it lets you schedule emails to go out at a time that you decide. And it works with any email client, even web based ones like Gmail or Yahoo Mail.
The service can be used to set up and send project reminders, birthday greetings or anything else that you can think of.
Once you’ve created your free account, you can schedule emails by simply sending the intended email to Deferred Sender and tell the service to, say, send it “after 2 hours” or “Tomorrow 9am” or “May 1st”.
For example, to schedule an email to be sent out at 9am tomorrow, just send the following email to email@example.com
This is a test email which will be sent out at 9am tomorrow.
Deferred Sender understands a lot of keywords to help you in scheduling emails and you can learn more about them by visiting the help section of the website.
Once, you’ve scheduled an email, you can change the time or date or cancel the email by logging in to your Deferred Sender account. You can also see a history of all the emails that you’ve sent out using the service from your account.
I can definitely see a use for this service for, for example, setting birthday reminders, or important deadlines for projects.
What do you guys think of the service, let me know in the comments.
