Do that, and you will dramatically increase the likelihood of getting an email reply.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to send email reminders, but first…

Why You Should Send Email Reminders?

Most people will not see your email.

Let’s make it clear.⬇️


Sure, there’s a lot that you can do to increase your email open rate such as using the right subject line, and we covered that in some of our previous blogs, but ultimately, the BIGGEST REASON for why your emails don’t get replied to? As they don’t get seen.

Why are they not seen? Most of the time, it has nothing to do with your email at all. Sometimes people have things going on, and they just forget to check your email. Other times, emails get lost.

There are so many different reasons for why your email didn’t get opened, which has nothing to do with the context of your email.

…And if you don’t do anything about it, that email will never get opened.

That’s why email reminders are such an effective, but also crucial strategy to getting email responses.

…But if you send a lot of emails, they do take time, and this is where the option below comes in. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

While Gmail and G Suite both have a scheduling feature built-in, that’s pretty hidden, it doesn’t come with an ability to send email reminders.


As to send email reminders automatically, you would need to be able to know when your emails are opened.

Otherwise, a big mess could be created where responses would be sent to people that did look at your email and were about to reply or just replied.

Gmail? It doesn’t offer the ability to track emails. And it probably never will. And that’s why it’s not possible to send email reminders automatically, directly from Gmail as it is.

How do you do it then? By using MailTag.

MailTag is a Chrome extension that can be used for many things, but in this case, to send automatic reminders.


  • As it allows you to track when and where your emails are opened.
  • It allows you to send automatic follow-ups, if your emails aren’t opened after x days.
