Gmail is one of the most popular email services presently. Although during the initial years, it competed with other similar platforms, but as time progressed, Gmail emerged as the favorite amongst users.
The popularity of Gmail can be attributed to the multitude of features it has to offer and the straightforward interface. One such feature is to schedule an email, which is by far the most helpful to many users. With this feature, you can schedule an email for a set date and time. You can have up to 100 scheduled emails at a given time.
This feature is helpful to both students and professionals alike. For instance, you have to send a mail at 3 AM, but you also have to sleep by 1 AM. This is where the scheduling feature comes to the rescue. Furthermore, you can schedule a mail for months later which is another lucrative option.
