How to schedule emails in Gmail and Outlook?

Think of all the times you were debating whether or not you should really send an email. right now. Maybe you’re afraid you’ll forget if you don’t do it at the right time, or contact someone in a different time zone, or in the middle of the night and you don’t remember something, or you’ve just written an angry email and I know you might regret it an hour later. Whatever the case, consider scheduling this email for later.

Gmail and Outlook give you the option to schedule your emails later that day, week, or year. Here’s how to do it.

Schedule emails in Gmail using your browser

Gmail makes this pretty easy.

  • Once you’ve drafted your email, click the arrow next to the blue “Send” button.
  • Click “Schedule Send”

Submit schedule button

The “Schedule sending” button can be accessed by clicking the arrow next to the “Send” button.

  • Click on one of the scheduling options

Gmail will suggest some options for sending times.

  • If you select the “Select date and time” button at the bottom of the window that opens, you can set the date and time you want the message to appear. Then click “Schedule Send”.

You can also decide for yourself when your e-mail is sent.

Schedule emails in Gmail using your mobile app

You can also schedule emails in the mobile app:

  • After typing your message, tap the three dots in the upper right corner.
  • Select “Schedule to send” from the options at the bottom of the screen (iOS) or the drop-down menu (Android)
  • As with the browser version, you can choose one of the times that Gmail suggests, or choose “Choose date and time” to choose your own date and time for when the email should arrive. Then tap “Save” in the upper-right corner of the pop-up (iOS) or “Schedule post” in the lower-right corner (Android).

  • Click on the three dots in the top bar
  • Select “Delayed Delivery” from the drop-down menu

Outlook provides an option to delay sending the email in the app.

  • Under “Delivery options,” make sure the box next to “Do not deliver before” is checked. You can use the drop-down options or simply type the date and time you want the email to go out. Click “Close” when you are done.
