Do Not Deliver Before!

Thursday, December 18th, 2008 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, MS Outlook

Do Not Deliver Before!

Ever find yourself putting together an e-mail message that you want to send, but just not yet?

Use MS Outlook 2003 or 2007?

Then I’ve got just what you need!

Regardless of your Outlook version, start by composing your message.

In Outlook 2003, you need to click on the Options button located above the To: field.

In Outlook 2007, you need to go to the Options tab on the ribbon and click on the Delay Delivery button.

In either case, you need to check the “Do not deliver before” checkbox and then set a date and time for the delivery. (Be sure to pick a time when you’ll have Outlook running so that it can send the message).

Close the Message Options dialogue window.

Send the message as usual.

Outlook will then keep the message in your Outbox and send it according to your specifications. It doesn’t get any better than that!
