Outlook – Delayed messages in Outlook don’t show up in the Sent Items folder until sent


I've set a delay in Outlook (2010) on all my outgoing mail (2 mins) which is working well. However, the messages don't appear in my sent items until after they send. This means I can't find them to cancel them if required. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

  • Messages that have not been sent appear in your Outbox. Once sent, they appear in your Sent Items

    The act of cancelling a message is to send the recipient a Recall message for an already sent email - this is sometimes automatically honoured in internal networks, but otherwise is a request the end user can choose to honour or not.

    In your case, if you don't want to send the message and realise this before the delay expires, then just delete it from your Outbox.
