With the new iOS 16, the iPhone’s Mail app offers a similar feature to Gmail’s Snooze option – an email reminder.
This can be helpful if you need to address an email at a later time and don’t want it disappearing from your inbox.
This is a great feature when you have a lot of emails to deal with and don’t want them to pile up.
Here’s a quick guide on how to set an iPhone email reminder.
Setting an Email Reminder
1. Open your Mail app
2. Swipe from left to right on the email you want to be reminded about.
3. Select “Remind Me.”
4. Select when you want to be reminded. You can be reminded in an hour, in a day, or tap “Remind Me Later” to select an exact date and time that works best for you.
5. Tap “Done.”
The email will still remain in your inbox if you want to address it sooner. But now you’ll get a notification at the time you selected. The email will pop up to the top of your inbox with a “Remind Me” label.
If you’re still not ready to deal with the email after being reminded, you can swipe left to right again and set a new reminder. Perfect for perpetual procrastination 🙂
Good to know! I’ve been flaging the ones I want to keep to remind me.
My AOL account is reminding me to follow up on emails that did not have a Reminder set. How do I turn it off.
