Delay Outlook E-mail

Once this is selected and added to the syntax of the rule (bottom pane of the dialog box) you’ll find that the phrase “a number of” is a link. Click it.
You’ll now be presented with a dialog box where you set your time delay.
Obviously the choice is yours… how much time do you want added? Obviously enough to allow you to catch most problems but not so much that the extra time becomes an issue with someone.
Anyway, set a time and click OK.
After clicking OK you should find that the number of minutes you selected is now actually written in the rule – but is still a link – so you can click the number and change it later if necessary.
Click the Next button.
The next step is to set any exceptions you want Outlook to make. If you really want all messages delayed then you leave all of this unselected and click the Next button.
Otherwise, set your exceptions then click the Next button.
In our last step you have an opportunity to name your new rule.
Enter a name that make sense to you and click the Finish button.
Voila! All your messages will go to the Outbox and be delayed before actually being sent.
Give it a try… you probably won’t notice that the delay is even there. Well, you won’t notice until the day you catch a problem before it actually becomes a problem!
