This quick tip is awesome for any multitasking attorney. If your short on time and want to write up an email now for a future time, Outlook lets you defer delivery until later very easily.

To do this, first write your email. Then switch to the Options tab and click Delay Delivery. This opens a windows with a “Do not deliver before:” field; enter a date and time, then click Close.

After you hit Send, the message will be held on the mail server until the specified time for sending. If you’re using an Exchange server, you can now close Outlook; if you’re using POP or IMAP you’ll have to leave Outlook open until the specified time for delivery has passed.
