Gmail has provided a lot of features through labs and one important feature it lacks will be “Send Mail Later” option. This kind of feature helps me a lot to send birthday wishes to my pals. As i tend to remember their birthdays on the previous day and miserably forgets on their birthday. So i was in a hunt to get this functionality but felt bitter when knew that Gmail did not and will not come up such feature as many feel this as a unwanted feature and may be misused.

But to my rescue comes ’” . All I need to do was that register with them with the email id from which i wish to send the mail . I need not want to login to their site every time when i want to send a mail. All i want to do is just address the mail to “” with some parameters. The parameters include the recipient address and the time at which the mail has to be sent. It was super cool as i did a lot of testing by changing the parameter values. Worked perfectly well. They also have this functionality packed as a widget so that one can fit into their site/blog. Their only concern is that it is not possible to send a mail with attachment which we can expect in their future releases.
