Forum Question: How Do I Schedule an Email?

I need a reminder email to go out to a group of people. I want to do it now while all the info is still fresh in my mind.

    One easy way to do it is to use iCal. Create an event and set the reminder to send you an email. iCal won’t send out an email to anyone but you — it is supposed to be for reminding you, not sending out emails to others. But then when you get that email you can simply forward that on to the group.

    Thanks; that sounds like it would work for me great. However, when I tried it, it told me “You must add your own card and email address in address book in order to use email alert.” I have my address in there, but it didn’t use it. I tried my user name too, but no luck. What am I missing?

      It sounds like you never told Address Book which card was “you.” Select it in Address Book and choose, Card, Make This My Card.
