In Outlook, there's a feature that allows me to schedule my emails for later delivery – I love it when I'm responding to emails late at night and don't want to appear to be a work-aholic. However, it defaults to 5PM – if it's before 5PM currently, it defaults to 5PM today, and if it's after 5PM currently, it defaults to tomorrow evening at 5PM. For example, it's currently 1:30AM where I am and Outlook is trying to deliver my emails at 5PM tomorrow evening:
Is there any way to change this default delivery time? Preferably, I'd like to set it to something like 6:30AM – that way, typing an email after hours, it's easy to schedule it for tomorrow morning (click "Delay Delivery" and then "OK"), where now I have to open "Delay Delivery", fix the time, usually fix the date as well, and then click OK.
I'm not looking to delay emails by default, I'm just looking for a way to change the assumption Outlook has that I'm interested in delivering my emails as soon as people go home – I'd prefer to deliver them in the morning before they arrive.
Thanks to the direction in the answer from Axel and code originally from Mike Hudson, I've written a macro that accomplishes exactly what I was looking to do. I pinned the macro to a button on my Quick Access Toolbar and now it's just a single click. Mission accomplished – thanks for the help!
Here's a link to the Delay Send Mail macro if you want to take a look yourself (you can follow this walk-through to get it pinned to your toolbar). I'm open to any feedback or enhancements suggestions anybody has, but it's a huge help for me as-is.
