How to Delay Sending Emails in Web-Based Outlook

By Travis Meyer

Although Microsoft's Outlook Web Access lacks the function included with the desktop-based client that allows you to automate when to send a message, the Web app includes other options for delaying composed messages. Like the desktop-based client, Outlook Web Access features a directory of folders that organize your emails. Save unsent messages to the "Drafts" folder to delay their delivery.

Step 1

Go online to the Outlook Web Access log-in page and sign in to your account.

Step 2

Click "New" to compose a new message. Type a message contact, subject and message in the corresponding text fields.

Step 3

Click the disk icon (the "Save" button) at the top of the composition interface to save the message and delay sending it.

Step 4

Click the "Drafts" folder in the left-side bar of Outlook Web Access when you are ready to send the email. Click the saved email in the folder and click "Send."
