Read carefully the mandatory declaration that comes up before taking the action and if you decide to go ahead then only click ‘Accept’. It’s  a very common practice anyway.

What you can do:

1)   Schedule emails for sending later

2)   ‘Boomerang’, from which the tool is named, to bring back emails into inbox on a pre-scheduled date or time which was earlier sent to a person

3)   ‘Boomerang’ unread mails of important events or information to reappear on a later date or time instead of keeping track of these with a scheduler, calendar or an organizer.
