Scheduled sending using mail

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to schedule an email message for a later time using mail?

What type of email. If you are trying to use it as just a reminder you can set an email reminder in ical and it will open mail and send an email at the time of your choosing. Only problem is you can't just send any email, it will send some sort of preset email.

One simple but not very effective way would be to use Automator. Create a script with a pause function that pauses as many seconds as you need it too. You'd need to use calculator to figure that out. Then tag on the send outgoing messages command from mail. That would work but it would probably be to tedious to use.

 

Or look around for an AppleScript that would tie the send function from Mail with your clock.

I've got a better way to do it. Create an Automator script that is just to send outgoing mail messages. Save it. Then go into your calendar and create a repeating event at whatever time of day that you want your messages sent at. Then set the alarm for that script to open a file and select the automator file you just created. If there are any messages in your outbox they will be sent at that time.
