I’ve been using this for quite some time now, delaying the emails that I send. It has saved me lots of times already: annoyed replies, forgotten attachments, incomplete answers et cetera. If you recognize any of these than this might work for you as well. I started with a 3 minute delay, but found this was too long. I am now using a 1 minute delay, but play around to see what works for you. (Note: you can also deselect this rule if you want to bypass the delay for a specific email).
Creating the rule in Outlook
Follow this set of clicks to create the rule in outlook, start in the toolbar with Tools then – Rules and Alerts – New Rule – Check Messages after sending – Next – Next – Defer delivery by a number of minutes – click the ‘a number of’ link in the bottom windows – choose the number of minutes you want – click ok – click finish – click ok
Works for you as well? Other Ideas? Let me know!
