There may be situations when you would like to send e-mail at pre-defined time or date so if you are using Microsoft Outlook to read and write e-mails then you can send the the e-mail at a pre-defined date or time. Most of us would be using Outlook to read and write e-mails in our offices to it would immensely useful when you want to send a report at a predefined time. ;)
How to Delay Send an E-mail Using Microsoft Outlook
1. Open the Outlook’s e-mail editor or composer.
2. Select the Message options. You can find access the message options via the standard toolbar in Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007. Below I am posting the screenshots for your reference.
Remember for outlook 2007 you need to go to Options>Delay Delivery in the menu bar.
3. Now in the window that pops up select the e-mail delivery date and time for your choice in the "Do not deliver before" fields. Refer to the screenshot below.
4. Once you do this and hit the send button, the e-mail would wait in your Outbox and would be sent at that particular date and time.
Remember you need to have the Outlook running in the background and before you send out that e-mail check if date and time are correctly set in your computer. If you have any questions then feel free to contact Shivaranjan.
