E-Mail scheduling is one of the important feature I rely on and most of them want this? My search for email scheduling started a couple of years ago. There are few third party web based email services which offers this feature to send mail later. The thing initiated me to write this article is native e-mail scheduling feature.
E-mail scheduling is scheduling a mail to send at particular time in future, to brief, if you want to send a birthday wish to your friend by email on next week then you can compose a email today and then program it to send on his/her birth day time in future. What I meant native is the feature should be in-built instead of looking help from the other web services than current email service.
LetterMeLater.com is one of the service which provides this facility to any one. It supports any email service provider. All you need is to have an account in it. But it is some what difficult to use, because the functionality is not native to your web based or email client.
