FastMail: Five top tips for new users
FastMail: Five top tips for new users Email is without a doubt a wonderful thing, it allows you to keep in touch with all those key people in your personal and business life. It doesn’t matter where you are, you can still receive and send an email, anytime of day, anywhere in the world. Generally, FastMail has been a feature only open to Windows users. But recently, the developers have adapted the software to suite Apple Mac users.
Of course, this is a great thing, but it can also be a terrible thing too. Email can find you wherever you are, so, if you are trying to take a break from work, or you are trying to escape marketing emails that are tempting you to spend money, then you may feel the system is causing somewhat of a headache.
Fastmail: Why should I use it?
If you are a confirmed Apple Mac or iOS user, then Fastmail probably hasn’t been part of your sphere. However, since FastMail developers introduced that they have introduced a feature which means that you can easily snooze any email in your inbox, delaying it appearing until a later date.
So, how does this work? Let’s take a look!
First, what is Fastmail?
Fastmail is a paid email service that is used on iOS and Mac systems. You can either get a Fastmail address when registering, or, if you would prefer you can bring your own domain name and use that instead. The Fastmail system will sync with your Mac calendar and contact lists, which means that everything that you are going to need is in one place.
What is this Apple Mac Fastmail snooze feature?
One key new feature for FastMail is the ability to snooze emails that have appeared in your inbox. It is incredibly easy to snooze an email, all you need to do is open the email and there you will see a snooze button on either the top toolbar or the bottom toolbar (depending on the system that you are viewing the email on). Once you see the snooze button, tap it.
You will be presented with a range of options for the snooze. You can choose:
- Later- this will snooze the email for three hours
- This evening- which will show you the email after 6pm on that day
- Tomorrow- the email will appear at 8am the following day
- This weekend- you will see the email again on the next Saturday at 8am
- Next week- this will set the email to appear the following Monday at 8am
- Last custom- this setting will remember the last custom setting that you used when snoozing an email
- Choose a date and time- this is where you will actually set a custom time and date
What actually happens to the email?
It doesn’t matter what option that you choose, the email will always be taken away from your main inbox and instead be placed in a “snoozed” inbox elsewhere on your system. There it will sit, waiting for the set time when it can reappear in your main inbox. Just like magic!
