Outlook.com now lets you schedule emails for a later date

2020-09-15 18:27


If you have ever wanted to schedule emails on Outlook on the Web (Outlook.com), you now easily do it from the web interface.

Gmail has offered its users the ability to schedule an email for some time, and Outlook desktop client users have also had this feature.

Users who use outlook.com, though, have not been able to schedule an email until recently when Microsoft quietly added the feature without telling anyone.

How to schedule an email on Outlook.com

To schedule an email for a later date in Outlook.com, please follow these steps:

  1. Login to Outlook.com and compose an email.
  2. Before sending the email, click on the drop-down arrow next to 'Send' and select 'Send later.'
    Outlook.com 'Send later' option
    Outlook.com 'Send later' option
  3. A calendar will be displayed, allowing you to specify the date and time you wish to send the email. Select the date and time you want to send the email and then click on the 'Send' button.
    Set date and time dialog

This email will now sit in the Drafts folder until it is ready to be sent.

How to cancel or change scheduled emails

To change or cancel a scheduled email on Outlook.com, you can do so from the Drafts folder, by following these steps:

  1. Find the scheduled email in the Drafts folder and click on it to open it.
  2. When you open the email, you will see an option that states 'Cancel Send' with an edit button that looks like a pencil. You will also see the date that the email is scheduled to be sent.
