If you need to send an e-mail more than a few minutes after drafting it, you run into problems that can be hard to solve. Saving the draft, remembering to send it on time, and just getting online can all be tricky, so scheduling starts to look more and more attractive.

That's it! Boomerang allows 10 free scheduled e-mails per month and requires a subscription beyond that.
