Boomerang's popular “Send Later” function makes it simple for you to schedule an email to be sent at a later time. You can draft an email now, then schedule it to be sent automatically at the perfect time. Just write the message as you normally would, then click the Send Later button.

Schedule an email

Use our handy calendar picker or our text box that understands language like "next Monday" to tell Boomerang when to send your message. We'll take it from there.

Boomerang for Gmail. First off, if you don’t have it, stop reading this and go get it. Right now. There’s absolutely no other extension that will add this level of function to your Gmail.
