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), and
1. Create a new rule
2. Select “Start from a blank rule” / “Apply on messages I send”
3. Select “Next” to apply the rule to every message sent (on the “Which condition(s) do you want to check” tab)
4. On the “what do you want to do with this message” page, select the “Defer delivery” option and choose the number of minutes
