SaneBox provides folders which you can use to defer mail until a future time. We call them SaneSnooze folders. You can use our off the shelf choices like @SaneTomorrow or @SaneNextWeek. Or even better, make Custom Snooze folders!
@SaneTomorrow defers mail until tomorrow. Move mail to this folder, and we’ll pop it back into your Inbox tomorrow. Between now and then, you’ll have one less thing to worry about.
@SaneNextWeek works the same way, but we’ll pop those messages back next Monday.
Or create Custom Snooze folders: If you would like to defer to a time other than tomorrow or next week, you can specify when the mail is moved back to your Inbox. Follow these simple steps:
Select the Create button under Custom Snooze Folder.
Enter a name for your new folder, maybe starting with a stand-out character.
Select the time to Hold for, anywhere from 3 hours to 26 weeks.
Or: Hold until, with a specific day or week and time. You can hold specified mail items until Saturday at 12pm, for example.
Click Create, and you are done! (The new folder will be auto-generated in your email account on your host’s server).
If you want to remove a custom snooze folder, simply click the On/Off toggle button adjacent to the folder name on your SaneBox Dashboard.
Please note: factors such as the load on your email provider’s mail server may cause some variation in the exact time that a snoozed item moves back to your Inbox. Our SaneReminders feature can be a great choice when more exact timing is desired for your follow-up on a To-Do item.
Custom Snooze comes with an auto-reply option too
Setting up an Auto Reply This is a fan favorite option! You can make special snooze folders and choose to set up auto-reply. Later the auto-reply goes out when you put select senders in there.
Why do I see my snoozed emails in the Trash?
If you choose “Top of Inbox” for your created snooze folders, this requires us to adjust the date in the email. We ask your email server to move the original to Trash to avoid you having duplicates. If you do not like this behavior, you can adjust your snooze folder settings to just “Inbox”.
