Use 'Schedule Send' Productively

You can schedule your email to be sent at a specific date and time in the future by clicking the small arrow next to the Send button.

This is useful when you need to send, after a 1:1 or an informational interview, a follow up email that contains some highlights from the conversasion.

This goes hand in hand with writing the email while the conversation is still fresh in your memory but you need to send the next day.

PRO TIP: Use this feature to send holiday wishes in advance.

If you want to send an email with a specific alias on it you can write your recipient's email as: [actual_email]+[desired_alias]@[his_domain].com. 

What this will do is send that email with that alias attached to it. If your recipient has a filter for that alias, it will get sorted out quicker!

A good usecase is completing newsletter forms with your_address+newsletter@gmail.com and make a filter so that every email that has the newsletter alias will automatically get labeled.

Spirituality & The Ego

"The opposite of spirituality is not materialism... but egotism" - Michael Pollan.
