I have been using Outlook.com for many years. And I’m quite a satisfied customer – I like how it easily integrates with Microsoft 365 services such as OneDrive, Word and Excel, and I prefer its user interface compared to Gmail.
However, there is one feature that I have wanted the service to have for a long time, and that is email scheduling. By using such a feature, not only can I send an email at the perfect time (goodbye, sending work emails to colleagues minutes before the end of the work week!). But it also allows me to better check my message for missing attachments. , wrong recipients and typographical errors.
Fortunately, Outlook.com finally implemented an email scheduling feature in 2020. Here’s how you can use the feature:
- Sign in to your Outlook account at www.outlook.com.
- At the top left of the screen, click new mail.
- Write your email as usual.
- After you finish writing your email, click Arrow opens Next to the Send button below your email, then click Shipping schedule.
- Select a time when you would like to send your email. Outlook has two default options, but you can always set your own time by clicking Custom time.
- Once you have selected a date and time, click to send. Your message will now be sent on the date and time you selected.
Unfortunately, you can’t schedule emails yet in the Outlook Android and iOS app, as Microsoft is still working on the capability.
