Send It Later

Have you ever had the need to just send it later? What am I talking about? Well, e-mails of course! Sometimes situations occur where you need to type an e-mail out right away, but it doesn’t actually need to be sent out until a later time. This happens to me all the time. I want to make sure I write the e-mail as soon as possible to ensure that I get all my thoughts written down, but the recipient doesn’t really need to see the e-mail until a day or so later.

So, what can you do? Well, the simple answer is that you can send the e-mail at a later date and Outlook Express makes this possible. Go ahead and compose your e-mail just like you normally would and when you’re done, go to File and choose the Send Later option. Now, this will place the e-mail in your Outbox and it will be sent the next time you hit the Send/Receive button. So, if you don’t want it sent until the next day, it’s important that you don’t click that Send/Receive button again until sometime the next day.

I wasn’t able to find an option like this for other e-mail programs, but that doesn’t mean you’re left out. You can still create a draft version of the e-mail and save it until you want to send it. This is even sometimes a better way to do things, because it allows you to send the e-mail on whatever day you want to. For directions on how to do this, click here. Either way you do it, you’ve got some choices and it doesn’t get any better than that when it comes to e-mail!
