Delay the Delivery of Sent Email in Outlook 2010

There are times when you would like to purposely delay the sending of certain emails, but you don’t want to sit around at your computer to send it at that later time.  Simply get your message ready to send and in the message window select the Options tab, and in the More Options group select Delay Delivery.  In the new window that opens up, look in the section labeled Delivery Options.  Mark the box next to Do Not Deliver Before, and select the date and time you would like your email to be sent.  Now once you click send, your message will stay in your Outbox until the time you have designated.  It is important to remember that if you are using a POP3 or IMAP email account, Outlook has to stay open until your message is sent.
