macOS Ventura has arrived, and if you’ve installed at least a beta version of it on your Mac, you now have a wealth of new features and tools to try.
One of my favorite new macOS Ventura features is the ability to schedule and unsend email through the mail client. I can’t count the number of times I’ve written and sent an email so quickly, only to look at it again a few seconds after I hit send and realize I’ve made a huge mistake.
While email clients like Gmail have offered some form of a “takeback” button for sent email for some time, until recently you didn’t have such an option in the macOS mail client. However, Apple addressed this error with macOS Ventura, and now you have up to 10 seconds to recover an email in Mail once it’s been sent.
Of course, 10 seconds isn’t a long time, so you should know exactly how to unsend an email in the mail so you don’t waste precious seconds searching for the right button. Knowing how to schedule email helps you get more done too, which is why this short guide will show you how to do both – so you’ll be ready when the time comes!
How to unsend an email in Mail on macOS Ventura
1. If you’ve typed an email into the macOS Ventura Mail client and hit Send and then decide you don’t like it, find a file Undo Send The button is in the lower left corner of the mail client. You’ll find it at the bottom of the left menu, and you’re better Hit it fast Because it disappears after ten seconds!
2. And that’s all there is to it! If successful, Mail will show you the respective email again, ready for any adjustments you need to make. Once you are certain this time, hit send (Although you can always undo it again if you need to, and you’re fast enough!)
How to schedule an email in macOS Ventura
Another new Mail feature in macOS Ventura is the ability to schedule email to be sent later, when you’re not on your Mac.
However, note that even if you are not there, your Mac must be turned on and Mail must be turned on to send a scheduled email! Heres how to do it.
1. Once you have an email ready to work, Click on the small dropdown menu To the right of the “Submit” button to open the “Schedule” menu. It’s a very small, thin, V-shaped icon that looks like an arrow pointing down, and you can see it highlighted in the image below.
2. Opening that menu should display a short list of casting options. Click Send 9:00 PM Tonight or Send 8:00 AM Tomorrow To quickly schedule one of those times. If you want a specific time, go to the next step.
3. If you want to schedule your message for some time other than what is suggested in the list, click send it later and then Choose the exact time and date The email will come out.
4. It is that easy! If you want to keep tabs on all emails scheduled for checkout, simply tap on course Tab in the mail to see the list. From there you can Edit it to your heart’s content.
With these two simple tricks, you have greatly increased your skills as a powerful mail user in macOS Ventura.
Just remember: you only have ten seconds to undo an email, and scheduled emails won’t send unless your Mac is turned on with Mail turned on by the time it’s supposed to go out!
