We have all gone there. When an email is sent to the whole group, everyone keeps pressing “reply all” which keeps your inbox buzzing. You need to deal with notifications that drag you away from your work, and Gmail can help. If you want to read these emails later, but don't want to be bothered by the constant back and forth, you can mute the email thread. Simply open Messages, click “More” in the top bar and select “Mute”. That's all there is to it. Now in this conversation, you will get every new message, but you will not get any alert about it.
All emails are sent as soon as you click on the send button. Gmail, on the other hand, allows you to schedule your emails to be sent later. With email scheduling, you can specify a future date or time for Gmail to send your email. However, this feature is limited in that you can only schedule one email at a time. When working outside of your shift, this feature is extremely useful. You can avoid your boss knowing that you sometimes work after hours. If you don't want to bother your customers after hours, scheduling your emails for the next business day is a good option.
