Delaying Mail or Messages

Ray Kloss
I have a family member in Europe and tend to send her photos and web clips that she may enjoy. When I am on my iPad at night and see an item, I have to try to delay sending it (especially by Messages) in case she does not have her phone silenced. Is there any way to tell an email or Message (not SMS) to send it in 2 hours or some such?

I will just ask her, but generally, do people have some trick they do so the message will go out at a different time?

If she is bothered by messages at night why doesn't she enable the automatic Do Not Disturb feature?

But no, there is no way to delay messages or mail in Apple's Messages/Mail.

I used to get woken at 4am by text messages from my car dealer until I discovered Do Not Disturb (in Settings). It’s now set for 10pm to 8am and I sleep through.

If you are sending an email on a Mac using Apple’s Mail, Mailbutler add-on will let you delay it. But if you’re on an iPad, I don’t know.

In Mailplane, which works only with Gmail, you can use the Boomerang plug-in to schedule mail. They also have an iOS app, which I haven’t tried.


But yes, DND is the answer.

Mailbutler absolutely does not work here, neither when downloaded from Apple Store nor from the Mailbutler site.

I suspect a conflict with MacOS 10.13.3.  I have e-mailed Mailbutler.

Years ago I set a particular client text tone to silent as they always texted me after midnight. Now I have more clients and my phone never shuts up. I just started using DND more last week and it’s a huge help.

That’s interesting. It worked on my Mac mini with 10.13.3. installed. I’m now running 10.13.4 beta and still no problems. 

They’re pretty good with answering email requests. I hope they’ll have a solution for you.

The latest version no longer works for me, either, and crashes in El Capitan and Sierra, as well.

Hi Tim,

I also have had many issues with Mailbutler but on v. 10.12 et al.   It simply did not work and caused constant freezing of my system so have not tried it on on v10.13.3.     I tried to get these issues resolved over several weeks by discussing them in detail with the developer but Tobias was unable to fix them.   I finally told him that I was discontinuing my subscription and have not used this app since.   I am not surprised that it does not work in v.10.13.3.   Although Tobias tried hard with my issues, I would suggest that you do not hold your breath waiting for him to produce a solution.

I too had problems with the latest version of MailButler (the one that is “in the cloud”) so I reverted to the previous version and it still works for me, but I’m on 10.12.6.  It’s kind of sad because when it works it really makes Mail a great email client.

Regards,

Howard

<snip for brevity>

Thanks to you and Roger.  Sounds like I can give up on Mailbutler for now!  If anyone hears that the problem with 10.13.3 has been resolved, please say.
