How to Send Outlook Emails at Scheduled Time

At times we have written an email ahead of time. Perhaps we would not like to send the email immediately. In this article, we will learn to send emails at scheduled time.

Sometimes for sending emails, it is not the sooner the better. We often need to select a better day or best clock to send the emails. However, confronted with busy working, we often forget to send the emails at the best time. I believe that you must have met the situation that you want to send an email at scheduled time. Then delay delivery is very important.

Outlook delay delivery

Actually, delay delivery of an email is very simple. Here are concrete steps of how to send emails at scheduled time in Outlook.

Firstly you could write an email as usual in Outlook. Just create a new email, and fill in recipient’s email address, subject and specific email contents. After finishing the email content, we should locate and pitch on “Options”. Then you will see the key option – “Delay Delivery”, and click it. In the popup dialog of “Properties”, you need to tick the item – “Do not deliver before:” Behind the item, you could choose the best time as you expect. Next click “close” and send the email. Afterwards you could return the “home” page, and you would see the email not in the “Sent items” but in the “Outbox”. It just stays there, waiting for being sent at scheduled time.

In fact, we would be required to check an option lest the email could not send out successfully. In the “File” page, select the “options”, and then locate and click “Advanced”. Next in the item of “Send and receive”, you need to click the “Send/Receive…” button. In the popup dialog, you should ensure whether the item “Schedule an automatic send/receive every 30 minutes” is ticked or not. If it is not ticked, the email will not be sent on time. Thus it is important for us to check and tick it. Once these steps are completed, we can ignore the email at ease.
