I'd like to continue to use Gmail from my web browser. I'd also like to see new emails at set times during the day, so I don't look at my Gmail many times in one day.

The ideal is to have Gmail refresh with new messages at 8a, 1p and 5p. Is that possible to implement without switching clients to something like superhuman?

  • If you keep the webpage open it usually refreshes. – user209067 May 30 '19 at 23:14
  • How can I stop that behavior? I know there's a marketplace of extensions. – Cauder May 30 '19 at 23:19
  • That what I don't understand, why do you want that? Just do not open it unless on those 3 times of the day you mentioned. And no, there's nothing for that purpose applicable to the webpage. Standalone email clients like Outlook or Thunderbird do allow for a schedule. – user209067 May 30 '19 at 23:21
  • Are you positive there is no work-around? – Cauder May 30 '19 at 23:23

    This is not what the OP was asking for. The OP wants to have the page open but it to refresh only 3 times a day at specific hours (!!!). I wonder why they can't just open it when they want to check email then close it like everybody else... – user209067 Jun 1 '19 at 9:16
  • @GabrielaGarcia true, however, I believe the issue is something like "how to check for new messages without constantly opening and closing the tab" eg. pinning it saves space and indicator shows new messages so no need to enter the tab to check if there is something in the inbox – user0 Jun 1 '19 at 9:22
