Set Follow-up Reminders

Save time and get a higher response rate on your emails with follow-up reminders. If your email receives no response by the time you specify, Spark reminds you about it. The email appears in your inbox again so you can write a follow-up.

Note: Reminders work locally in Spark. You won’t get reminders in another email app or on the web page of your email provider.
