Using Send Later in Sofort-start.de Webmail
If you want to schedule an email for the future, this feature will allow you to choose a time and date when the addressee is going to receive your email.

Good news though! Sofort-start.de (1&1) supports IMAP, so you can use it and schedule emails for later if you add your account to Mailbird.
So, how do you schedule emails to send later from Sofort-start.de?
In order to access the send later feature with your Sofort-start.de (1&1), just follow the steps below. You will be able to try it with Mailbird for free.
