Though I never forget to wish my friends and loved ones on their birthday or any special occasions, I do not take any chance and make sure that my heartfelt message gets to them at the perfect time.One of the simple tricks that I use to make sure that I do not miss an opportunity to show my love and regards is planning. Thanks to several new age email apps, scheduling emails on iPhone, iPad and Mac is as easy as pie and you too must take the full advantage of this smart way to continue to win praise from your loved one.

The stock Mail app for iOS and macOS may have really improved of late. However, there some user-friendly features it does not have like scheduling emails. There are three third-party email apps like Newton Mail, Microsoft Outlook and Spark, which I have found a step ahead of their peers. Any of these three email apps can be used to schedule messages.

My eMail provider allows me to do this natively while I’m logged in via a web browser, so if yours allows for that too, no need to fumble around on your local machine.


Another option is – works with any email application and there is a free option.
