Time To Make The Emails Did you know that you can use Microsoft Outlook to make emails in advance and have them go out automatically hours, days, weeks, months or even years later? For example, let's say you want to send out an email about a team meeting next Friday but you want everyone to receive it on Thursday. Instead of waiting until Thursday to compose and send the email you could write it now and time it to go out on Thursday morning. You could even use this feature to schedule a reminder email to yourself about an upcoming event or meeting. If you don't use Microsoft Outlook for your email check the system you do use for similar features. Also, please note that if you are using an online, webmail version of Outlook or Outlook Express these directions might not work for you. Here's send a timed email in Microsoft Outlook: 1) Start a new email by clicking the button in the upper left hand corner of the screen or press control plus the letter n from the keyboard. 2) For this example we'll have you send a timed email to yourself. Type your own email address in the "TO:" line of the new email. If you wanted to send a timed email to someone else or a group of people you'd type in their addresses instead. 3) Under "Subject:" type in "It's time to go home" and type whatever you want in the message area. 4) Now to set the timing. Look for "Options." in the toolbar and click on it. From the keyboard, press alt plus p followed by the letter d. 5) Tab across and in the box that appears check the box for "Do not deliver before" and then set the date and time. Make sure to read the date and time format that already in the box. For example in the date box it will show 9/18/2012 if you are trying this out today. To change this, type over it or backspace it out and enter a new date in the same format. 6. Press enter when you have completed entering the date and time. You are placed back into the message. 7. Press alt plus s or click on send and wait for the your message to arrive at your chosen time/date. 6) Now click to send or press alt plus s to send this email to yourself. If you did everything correctly you should get this email from yourself at the time and date yu set in step number five.
