Perfect timing with scheduled emails

Mixmax is a communications platform that brings email into the 21st century. We believe everything you do today on the web should be possible in any email.

We’ve listened to your feedback and are proud to announce the feature you’ve asked for the most: scheduling emails to send later.

Scheduling emails gives you precise control for when your email reaches the recipient’s inbox. For example, you can write an email at 11pm at night, then schedule it to arrive promptly in the morning at 8am. You can also use email scheduling to send yourself reminders, or just to make sure your email arrives when others are likely to read it. This gives you great precision over your email delivery. We’ve worked hard to make scheduling emails with Mixmax easy and intuitive. 

How to use it

After you compose your email, move your cursor to the clock icon next to the Send now button. The schedule menu will open and you will see preset times to choose from.  The times are in the current times zone you’re in.

If you would like to scheduled for a specific time, you can type it into the entry field. The entry field understands natural language so you can type “tomorrow morning” and it will convert that into 8am tomorrow. When the form recognizes your input, the exact time and date will appear below the input along with a scheduled email button. Click on the Schedule email button to confirm the time.

You can change when your message arrives by clicking Reschedule button in the upper right. You can also send the email immediately or you can delete it. After you delete a scheduled email, it will not send.
