Microsoft Outlook 2010: How to schedule e-mail delivery on Windows Vista?
Imagine a situation wherein you would like to send a thank you mail to your team for all the efforts they have put in a particular project. However, you have an important meeting to attend and therefore, you know, you wouldn’t be present in the office to send the mail at the appropriate time (when they will submit the final project – may be say in two/ three hours). If you are sure about the time you would like the mail to be delivered, you can schedule a delayed delivery using the Microsoft Outlook 2010 application. Yes, this is pretty simple. If you haven’t done it previously, here is your chance to learn the steps.
The easy step solution to the issue is as:
- Open Microsoft Outlook 2010.
- Click the “Home” tab and then click on “New E-mail” to compose a new message.
- Prepare your e-mail message in the new message window.
- Click on the “Options” tab and then select “Delay Delivery”.
- Under the ‘Delivery Options’ heading, check the “Do not deliver before” option and then select a date and time that you would like the e-mail to be delivered at.Â When finished, click “Close”.Â
The only condition that should be met in this situation is that you must remember to keep your Microsoft Outlook 2010 application running till the e-mail is scheduled for delivery. If you close the application, the e-mail will reach the Outbox and remain there till you open the application when you are available.
