Snooze an Email

Spark allows you to snooze an email to make it appear as “new” in your inbox at a specific time. This feature is helpful when you can’t answer an important email immediately and want to get a reminder about it later.

Snoozing works across all your devices. You can snooze an email on Mac and receive it on your smartphone and vice versa. Make sure you're logged into the same email for sync on both of your devices. Learn more about the sync option in Spark.
