Schedule Send Date/Time for Draft Emails Automatically Sent at a Future Time
I have another email service that allows users to schedule draft emails to be sent at a specified date/time in the future. Once the draft is complete, the email is automatically sent at the future specified date/time, unless that draft email is deleted/replaced prior to the send date/time. The draft email can either reside in an existing "draft" folder or a separate "outbox" folder (as distinguished from "draft" that does not have a scheduled send date/time).
Different Emphasis from Similar Postings:
I noticed a number of other similar postings, however, I wanted to provide this new posting to possibly emphasize something more than what I saw emphasized in other similar postings: closely related general delivery options. I would suggest ProtonMail allow every draft email to have a drop down menu that provides the option for selecting "Delivery Timing" using a calendar display for selection of a date and a time field to select/enter a corresponding time on that selected date (time should be clearly set for a selected time zone, e.g., CST or GMT, to reduce possibilities for confusion on timing). Again, whenever "Delivery Timing" options are selected, the draft email can then reside either in the existing "draft" folder or in a newly appearing "Outbox" for any pending emails to be sent at a future date/time. The other email service I use provides a range of closely related general delivery options to also include:
-- "Message Priority" (Low, ******, High);
-- "Private" (to help prevent email forwarding, if clients support that);
-- "Return Receipt" and
-- "Delivery Timing" (previously addressed)
I recommend ProtonMail make these general delivery option menus accessible via one additional icon next to the existing row of icons on draft emails for "Attachments," "Encryption" and "Encryption time." The icon could be a clock next to a letter (just a suggestion), since "Encryption time" already uses a clock icon.
I don't believe other similar postings emphasize these closely associated general delivery Options. I have previously given this other email provider feedback on perfecting their services in other areas (with different providers having different strengths/weaknesses), but this is one particular feature they have had for a very long time that I believe provides an excellent example to follow.
would be very keen to see a schedule function for proton; very keen to move my email work over to proton;
+1 but why is this topic under the proton calendar suggestions now, and not the ProtonMail?
Yes, I agree this would enhance the ProtonMail offering a great deal.
this would make protonmail perfect for me, i love the organization and everything else. this is the last feature that is a must have in my book.

So many globally distributed teams these days, we need this feature ASAP. thanks!
Please add this feature ASAP. At least in 3 months and please make this as a free feature.
This is an absolute must for people who work in the evenings!
I can't believe this got lower priority than Proton Drive work! Instead of making their core offering strong the Proton team is working on Yet Another Cloud Storage offering to have multiple mediocre services instead of one stellar one.
Yes, this feature is a really important one for my usage habits as well! I hope to see it available in beta soon.
+1, also https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-protonmail/suggestions/32768770-schedule-send-date-time-for-draft-emails-automatic it's the same with more votes
Dear ProtonMail, +1. Please add scheduled sends. I love that feature at gmail and I miss it here. It's 00:50 now, and I don't want to send business emails at that hour, but I want to schedule them to be sent at 8:00 am.
This is absolutely necessary! I hope the protonmail team can add this feature ASAP
I'm loving being encrypted and staying safe with Protonmail. No turning back. Just one thing though, I have been using the scheduling messages feature for almost 2 years before jumping onto Protonmail. Please add this feature to Protonmail. I literally feel like I have gone back to the 80's without this feature. Please Protonmail team, I am kneeling on the floor and begging you ;)
Absolutely need this feature too.
I use this extensively on Gmail and have an addon for Thunderbird on my desktop that does this for my other e-mails. I would love to not have to rely on keeping Thunderbird open and just be able to use this directly on the server.
I need this for my business
I heard this will be made available in version 4 of Protonmail, but is this the case?
Thank you, looking forward to it.
Can we please bump this? This seems like a feature every email provider should have.
Good idea - I need this for my business
