How To Delay Sending Emails In Outlook With A Rule So You Can Undo Send

Monday October 31, 2016 at 11:38am
Gmail has a built-in feature that lets you ‘undo’ an email that you’ve sent. It’s there to help you avoid last minute email accidents such as forgetting to attach a file. It gives you a brief window in which you can stop a sent message from being delivered. It’s widely reported that this feature has saved lives. If you use MS Outlook and would like a similar feature on the desktop app, you can set it up yourself with an Outlook rule. Here’s how.  

Open Outlook, go to File and click the Manage Rules & Alerts button. Click New Rule and on the ‘Rules Wizard’ screen,  go to the ‘Start from a blank rule’ section. Click ‘Apply rule on messages I send’.  

On the next screen, ignore everything and just click ‘Next’. Ignore the warning the on-screen prompt  gives.
