All too often, I send an email and regret it a moment later.
Maybe I bumped into Send before I was ready. Maybe I wrote something mean & nasty, and want to rephrase to something more constructive. Maybe I think of a better way to make my point.
With these steps, Outlook will keep my message in the Outbox for a few minutes. When I change my mind, I can go there and modify the message.
- Tools.Rules and Alerts
- New Rule
- Start from a Blank Rule
- Check Messages before Sending
- (don’t check any conditions)
- Yes, apply to every rule
- Check “defer delivery by a number of minutes” (the last checkbox)
- Click on “a number of”.
- (don’t check any exceptions)
- Supply name if you like.
