Schedule sending email to Gmail: Boomerang for Gmail
If you use Gmail, surely you have noticed that among the many basic settings there is no option that allows you to choose a different date for sending an email. In fact, you may have to write an email and maybe choose to send it later, even after hours or even days.
Fortunately, this gap in Google's e-mail service is filled thanks to an interesting extension of the name Boomerang for Gmail, compatible with the main internet browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
