MS Outlook

How can I delay the sending of an email in Outlook ? I would like the email message to stay in the outbox for say 10 minutes in case I want to make a change to the message.

messages only go to the Outbox after you have hit the sent button

Take a look at the menu icons and look for something called Delayed Delivery.
I am using Outlook 2010 and it has that option. 2007 also had it.

You just need to dig for it.

once you create a new message, click the Options tab> click Delay Delivery (Outlook 2007). This will open up the Message Options window. Under Delivery Options, check the Do not deliver before checkbox and then select a date and time from the given options. Save changes and exit the window.

If you want to delay each and every without going through this each time you send an email, you can create rules. Check this link http://how-to-outlook.blogspot.in/2012/09/how-to-schedule-email-in-microsoft.html and schedule your emails in a proper manner.
