How can we improve New Mail?

Schedule email send times

Would be really nice if we could schedule a time for emails to be sent. For instance, if I am drafting a message today that I don't want to send until Monday morning, it would be great if there was a way to schedule that instead of having to remind myself to send it Monday morning or having to have someone else send it because I am not going to be connected at the time that I need it to be sent.

    Have you considered a "Future Send" feature where an email could be created with a send date in the future. For example, if you wanted to send a birthday wish, but wanted to compose it ahead of time so you didn't forget...

    Yahoo can use this suggested feature as an advantage to their email system. I would like it for one reason: I want to have an email scheduled to be sent on a particular day of a month to relatives. Should I not stop that email from being sent, then something has happened to me (i.e., death) and I need him/her clear my internet searches. Ha-ha-ha, just kidding. I want to provide "if I should die" instructions to him/her. There are online companies that provide this service but it should be ridiculously simple to implement within Yahoo email and something they can leverage in marketing. Obviously, I would schedule and, hopefully cancel, such an email every month.

    Its ridiculous that a feature that is so obvious and has been requested so many times; its still not implemented yet. It only goes to show how little do Yahoo cares about new features and new ideas. It is available on outlook and most of the major mail utilities. Its probably best to migrate elsewhere and let Yahoo go down as I anticipate soon you may even discontinue offering emails.

    We need this facility for reminder to customers in future date for payment reminders for sales call reminders
    and for sending marketing information to customers, with a "spaced repetition"

    I need to schedule my emails because I often have time to write them only at night but I don't want send emails to my business colleagues at 1:00 am! I really would like to have the possibility to send them later. My business colleagues told me to use Gmail that at this moment for this reason seems to be more professional, but I would like to use Yahoo. If you don't add this options in a few months I also will leave Yahoo for Gmail :(
