Frequently Asked Questions


Q:How does Right Inbox work?

First you need to install a tiny browser extension. Then Right Inbox will integrate with Gmail user interface. There is no other software you need to install, but you will be required to go through a simple one-time authorization process.

Q:How do I install the browser extension?

Follow this link to download the browser extension. Currently, we support Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.

Q:Do I need to install the extension to each of my computers?

Yes. You need to install the extension to each computer AND to each browser on which you would like to use Right Inbox.

Scheduling Emails

Q:How do I schedule emails to be sent later?

After you install the browser extension, you can start using Right Inbox immediately in the Gmail user interface. A “Send Later” button will be added below the “Send Now” button when you are on the Compose screen. When you finish writing your email, you can use that button to schedule it for sending. You can select from the options available, such as “in 1 hour,” or “tomorrow morning,” or you can specify an exact time.

Q:How do I know my email is scheduled?

When you schedule a date for an email, it is placed in your Drafts folder with its subject line indicating that it is scheduled to be sent at a certain time. The email will wait in your Drafts folder until its delivery time comes. When it is sent, the time indicator in the subject line will be removed and only the original subject line will remain.

Q:How do I know my email has been sent at its scheduled time?

When your email is sent automatically, it is placed in your Sent folder, as with any other sent email.

Q:What if I want to cancel a scheduled automatic delivery?

Simply go into your Drafts folder and discard the message you would like to cancel.

Q:How do I reschedule an email to a different time?

At any time before it is sent, you can go into your Drafts folder and re-schedule a scheduled email. Simply open up your Draft and select the “Send Later” button as before, then choose again from the options.

Q:Can I edit scheduled emails before their delivery time?

Yes, definitely. From within the Drafts folder, open any email that you want to change and make your edits. Remember to save your changes if they are not saved automatically.

Q:Do I need my computer open for automatic delivery?


Q:What about time zone support?

If you opt to choose a specific date and time when you schedule an email, you can also opt to define a time zone. Right Inbox operates from within your local time zone by default. However, if you define a time zone, your message will be delivered at the time you specify within the zone you define.

Email Reminders

Q:How do email reminders work?

You may utilize email reminders in two ways. One way is to add reminders while composing an email. In that case, the reminder is attached to the email you compose & sent. The other way is the add reminders to individual emails or conversations while you are viewing them. In both cases, email reminder can be set via the button on the toolbar at the top. When you press that button you can see your options and you may select a date/time for your reminder.

Q:How do I know if I set the reminder correctly?

When you set a reminder, the ‘Remind Me’ button becomes checked and its color turns to orange to indicate that it is in active state. Also an additional notification bar would appear on top of the screen when you set a reminder successfully. Likewise, if you check back that email or conversation which you have set a reminder before, the ‘Remind Me’ button is again indicated in active state. Furthermore, when you hover over the orange button with your mouse cursor, you can see a tooltip which indicates the reminder date.

Q:How do I cancel a reminder?

You can always press the ‘Remind Me’ button again do disable a reminder. It will be unchecked and its color will change back to normal. Needless to say, you can always set another reminder.

Q:What are email reminder options?

There are 8 options:

  • Only if nobody responds: You can check this option if you like your reminder to be trigger only if nobody has responded to the conversation. This feature is useful if you want a particular email to be brought to your attention if you don’t get a response within a specific time. Otherwise you won’t be notified.
  • Return to inbox: If you have archived the email, this option would bring the conversation to the inbox when the reminder is due. This would help to keep your conversation clean, you would not be displaying emails until when necessary. For example, you could use this to remind you about a regular event or need, like bills or a meeting?
  • Put it on top of the inbox: When a reminder is triggered, you may want the message to appear on the top of your inbox for immediate visibility. In that case, another email is appended to the conversation so it can be placed on top of your inbox.
  • Star it: When reminded, your email will be starred if this option was selected.
  • Mark as unread: Simple as adding a star. The conversation will be marked as unread if the option was selected.
  • Label as ‘Reminder’: A label called ‘Reminder’ will be attached to the conversation. If there is no label called ‘Reminder’, it will be created first.
  • Label as ‘To Be Reminded’: If you would like keep track of reminders that you have set, you can have this option checked. So you can inspect later which conversations are set to be reminded.
  • Label as ‘Reminder’: A label called ‘Reminder’ will be attached to the conversation when reminded. If there is no label called ‘Reminder’, it will be created first.
