Guest blogger, Toni Kent, shared this Outlook tip.
Have you ever sent an email then wished you hadn’t? Or thought “whoops”, just spotted a mistake?
It’s easy to set Outlook to give you a safety net, where emails sit in your Outbox for a few minutes before being sent – you can fish them back out, make changes and resend if necessary.
In Outlook, go into the Manage Rules & Alerts settings (in Outlook 2013, it’s on the HOME ribbon),
- Create a new rule
- “Start from a blank rule” / “Apply on messages I send”
- Select “Next” to apply the rule to every message sent (on the “Which condition(s) do you want to check” tab)
- On the “what do you want to do with this message” page, select the “Defer delivery” option and choose the number of minutes
