Setting Reminders

Learn how to set, remove, or reschedule reminders in Mixmax to save time and stay organized with email follow-ups.

Updated over a week ago

Setting Reminders is available on all Mixmax plans, including the Free plan. Sequences are available on the Small Business plan and above. Check out our pricing page for more information.

Currently, Setting Reminders is not supported for Outlook-based users. To learn more about the Mixmax integration with Outlook, check out How to use Outlook with Mixmax.

You can set reminders to bring an email back to your inbox at a specific date and time if activity on the email is not recorded (such as if not read).

If you plan to follow up with a specific email, you can save even more time by utilizing Sequences instead. You can read more in our Sequences Overview.
