Tip #4: How to schedule and send emails later - Future emails in Zoho Mail

Sending an email doesn't end with using the correct phrases and hitting the send button. 'Timing' the email correctly is equally significant when it comes to business emails, in this age of communication across nations and in varied timezones. 

Wouldn’t it be good if you can draft and send your emails now and time it to reach your recipients at their peak productive time in their own time zone? With the email scheduling feature in Zoho Mail, you can exactly do that.

Steps to schedule an email to send later:
  1. Click Compose to open the editor.
  2. Draft the email as usual.
  3. Add attachments, if any.
  4. Click the Clock icon to setup set up a schedule for the email.
  5. The options readily available are 'After' 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, Tomorrow morning and Tomorrow afternoon.
  6. You can also directly pick a particular date and time to set, apart from the above options. 
  7. Click Send. 
  8. Once you click Send, the email will be moved to the Outbox 
  9. It will be in the Outbox until the time you have scheduled. 
  10. You can edit it or even delete it from the Outbox, in case you change your mind. 

The feature will be useful to send an email quote to a partner or a client in a different time zone. On a casual note, you can even use this to wish someone for their birthday or anniversary without missing it out. 

Try scheduling your emails and let us know if you liked the feature! See you next week with another useful tip!

                                            Struggling with drafting your emails? Drafting certain emails can be tricky. Whether it is a communication to a client or announcing a new discount to your customers or sending feedback to your employees, choice of words and tone of emails can be confusing.  We always get help from someone or get someone's feedback before we send out such emails. But copying the content from your editor, putting it in a chat and getting feedback and again correcting your draft gets clumsy. The troubles multiply when

                                            We all add screenshots, or copy paste images in our emails. Often we rely on third party tools to annotate them, save and them embed them in our emails.  No more image hassles! Just paste the screenshot you captured, annotate it, and embed the image right inside your email. Steps:  Compose the email.  Copy the image you want to embed, to the clipboard.  In the editor, place the cursor on the exact location where you want to embed the inline image. Hit Ctrl + V to paste the image or choose Paste from

                                            Whenever we want to note down some piece of information either for a quick reference later, or to have it systematically saved, we all use notes. We used to stick coloured papers around us with phone numbers, pieces of information from emails, things that we talked over in our phones etc. This has now taken the digital format and moved to cloud. With Zoho Mail Notes, note taking is much more easier and you can directly add notes from selective email content or attach a note to your email.  In this
