What can you achieve thanks to Autopilot?

The Autopilot interface lets you define:
  • On which days of the week you want to send emails (e.g. Monday to Friday)
  • On which hours of the day your emails should be sent (e.g. 9 AM to 5 PM)
  • How many emails you can send per day (e.g. 300 emails/day)
  • The interval of time between each email (e.g. Send one email every 60 seconds)
  • When to start sending the emails (e.g. Right now)
You can customize each setting to achieve your email marketing goals. With optimal settings, your messages will have a better chance of reaching your recipients' inboxes.
When you change a setting, Mailmeteor gives you an estimate of how long it will take to send all your emails (e.g. "about 2 days" in the screenshot above).
