Scheduling emails is a way to send emails automatically later to get the benefits of better open ratio. Normally, email scheduling is done by email marketers to send marketing messages to their target audience. But now individual users also like to schedule meeting emails. The stock Mail app in iPhone and iPad doesn’t offer this facility, and therefore, users have to rely on third-party email scheduling apps to schedule an email to send later on iPhone and iPad.
This tutorial is about how you can delay in sending an email in Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, iCloud, Microsoft Exchange on your iOS device. Spark is a free application you can download on your iOS device as well as on your Mac to arrange your emails to be sent at a particular time.
But why should you Postpone your emails?
As mentioned above, email scheduling is a practice adopted by marketers to blast emails. But common users have different use of such email schedulers. They want to schedule emails for a future data so that they can wish their loved ones on their birthdays and wedding anniversaries, or a special date of their life. Moreover, if you send a mail at night, there is a slim chance that your mail will be opened. So it is a better idea to set a schedule of your emails.
Professionals use email scheduling tools to make sure that their superiors receive reports in time or whenever they want in a day. Moreover, they can create an impression that they are working till late night (if you schedule an email at 3:00 am).
If your company headquarters are far away and it is in a different time zone, you can schedule an email accordingly.
