Delayed Email


Delay the sending of an email. wp_delayed_mail is the same as wp_mail except that the first argument passed to wp_delayed_mail is the UNIX epoch timestamp at which to send the email.


  1. Upload the wp-delayed-email directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Send an email calling wp_delayed_mail just as you would wp_mail, except that the first argument is the UNIX epoch timestamp for the time at which you want the email to send.


Why would I want to send an email in the future?

That’s up to you, but I wrote this plugin to act as part of a delayed auto-responder to a form submission.
