How to Schedule Emails in MacOS Ventura

MacBook on the table.


I’m still a huge fan of email. I send loads of work through one or more email clients (such as ThunderbirdGeary, Gmail and Apple Mail) all day. Of course, not every email client is built the same. Some, such as Geary, are very simple and caught my attention through their very clean, simple and efficient interface to use. Other email clients offer more features than I know I’ll need, but it’s great that they’re there (if I’m lucky I might need them someday).

Other email clients have the right mix of form and function so that I can not only stay in constant touch with the people in my various circles, but also do so in such a way that for clean, easy and efficient travel.

Apple Mail does this sporadically. I would say that Apple Mail is one of the best email clients on the market. It’s a hard pill to swallow for someone who constantly pushes for open source solutions and uses Linux as their daily operating system.

But I try to call them the way I see them, and Apple Mail is the best of the best. With the release of MacOS Ventura, the company added a few new features that reinforce that opinion for me. One of such features allows you to schedule emails to be sent at a time of your choosing.

Why do you need to schedule emails?

Consider this: You have an important email to compose. Let’s say you’re sending your manager an email to let them know that you’re moving to another company. You spent Thursday night composing the perfect communication, but you don’t want to send it right away because A) You don’t want to receive that horrible midnight phone call and B) You’d rather it to their inbox during company business hours or a specific time of day. Such planning can make a huge difference in how things are handled.

If that sounds like a situation you might find yourself in, read on. Or maybe you just love the idea of ​​composing emails at random times and sending them out on schedule.

With the new version of Apple Mail that comes with MacOS Ventura, the feature is not only built-in, but it’s also incredibly easy to use.

Let me show you how it’s done.


The only thing you need for this feature to work is a device running MacOS Ventura. I will demonstrate this on a MacBook Probut the feature works the same on a MacBook Air or iMac. For those who prefer to use version numbers, I would go with Apple Mail v16.0. If you’re using an older version, make sure to upgrade.

With Apple Mail open, compose a new email and select the recipient for the recipient. Enter the subject and then enter the email body.

Once you’ve finished composing your email, you’ll see a new drop-down menu just to the right of the send button.

From the drop-down menu, you can choose from one of the default times (Now, 9:00 PM Tonight or 8:00 AM tomorrow) or you can choose a custom time.

If none of the defaults suit your needs, click Submit Later. A new pop-up will appear where you can set a specific date and time to send the email. Schedule a time to send the email and click Schedule.
