Ask Amy: How to delay sending an e-mail message

Recently I was asked if is possible to create an email and have it sent at a later time and/or date. The answer is “Yes.”

This handy feature allows you to create an email and delay its delivery for hours or even days.

  1. Create an email message.
  2. Click on the Options tab.
  3. Within the More Options group, click on the Delay Delivery button. The Properties dialog box displays.
  4. Within the Delivery options area, the “Do not deliver before” options should be checked. If not check it.
  5. Select the date and time for the message to be delivered.
  6. Click on the [Close] button.
