The answer to this is using a beautiful app called Boomerang. It is a Chrome and Firefox Extension that helps you schedule the emails you send and receive for a later time.

No need to worry about time zones as Boomerang knows the time-zone of yours and others too.

There is no loop holes in the security of your mails using Boomerang as it only has access to the header section of your email (i.e  sender ID, subject, date and time to deliver the mail). It has no access to body content of your email, so you can fearlessly use this extension.
