Send Your Email Messages At A Specific Time (Outlook 2003)

There may be times when you compose an email message but do not want to send it right away. You could save the message to your Drafts folder and send it later. Alternatively, you can configure Outlook to send the message for you on a specific date at a specific time.

To configure an email message to be send at a specific date and time:

  1. Open Outlook 2003 and compose your email message.

  2. Select the Options button. The Options dialog box will appear.
  3. Select the Do not deliver before option.
  4. Use the first drop down arrow to select the date when you want the message sent.
  5. Use the second drop down arrow to select the time when you want the message sent.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click Send.

The message will now be sent to the recipient on the date and time that you specified.

    If you want to cancel it, look in your Outbox for the
    message, and change it(or the time), or delete it, as needed

    But there is a problem in this, you can only send the mail in the specific time you want, but the time of the drafting of the mail will still be the same as when you created it.

    for e.g.: if you want to send the mail at 8pm, but you are drafting the mail at 6.30pm and setting the options to be sent at 8pm. Mail will be still reaching the destination at 8pm, but the time displayed in the mail will be 6.30pm.
