Yesterday I wrote about recalling e mail messages in Gmail , well you can also set up a function in Outlook that will delay you sending the message so you have time to correct or change your mind when sending an e mail.

You can set up the rule by going to Tools, then Rules and Alerts , then new rule.

Start a blank rule that will “Check messages after sending.”

Then click next at the bottom of the rules wizard and you will receive a warning that this rule will apply to all messages

The next screen should have an option to “defer delivery by a number of minutes.”

Decide on the number of minutes you want to delay the message for , click OK, next. skip exceptions, specify a name for this rule, and click Finish.
