Let's say your day starts at 9 a.m., but the preset time for a morning reminder is 8 a.m. It can be annoying to get alerted early about a message that you're not ready to deal with. And the same issue may arise for your afternoon and evening schedules, since not everyone has the same workday hours. Here's how to change the preset times so you can easily snooze an email for the appropriate hour:
