Monday afternoon is a good time to reach out. Anything done on the weekend will get lost in the Monday morning email shuffle

I always advise between 10-12 o'clock on Tue-Wed-Thu for anything you want people to pay attention to, especially if they have otherwise no compelling reason to get back to you quickly. You want your msg to pop up new in their inbox and only after they've already had their coffee and have settled in and gone through their original stack of emails when they first logged in.

Monday
