Preventing the ‘Oh, no’ moment after sending an email
A simple guide to help you delay sending your emails for 5 minutes after you hit send.
Go to Outlook, look at the menu, click tools, from the drop down menu select ‘rules and alerts’. The rules and alerts window will pop up.
Click on ‘New rule’
Then choose “Start from a blank rule”, choose “Check messages after sending”
Then click ‘next’.
Click ‘next’ again on the “Which conditions do you want to check”. A window will pop up
On the next screen, check the box for “defer delivery by a number of minutes”.
Click the Next button, and then give the rule a name
And that should keep you safe from sending emails before you have a chance to correct them.
