“Send Later” is Rolling Out to Outlook on the Web

Posted on June 23, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft 365, Office 365 with 6 Comments

A new “Send Later” feature for Outlook on the Web is now heading out to Education customers only, Microsoft says.

“Now you can schedule a mail to be sent at a later time or date using Outlook for web,” Microsoft’s Mike Tholfsen tweeted. “Just drop down the ‘Send’ button and choose ‘Send later’ and then choose a date and time.”

Tholfsen works in Microsoft’s Education team and the Microsoft 365 Roadmap site notes that this feature is only being rolled out to Education users.

But Neowin claims that the feature is also rolling out to “Office 365 enterprise customers and those with personal Microsoft accounts,” meaning Outlook.com. (Outlook on the web is for Microsoft 365 and Office 365 commercial customers, while Outlook.com is for individuals with Microsoft accounts.) I can’t confirm that, and I don’t see this feature in my Microsoft 365 commercial or Outlook.com interfaces.

    We have Outlook Enterprise at work. I am seeing the "Send Later" option in the Outlook Web version.

    I'm not an education customer, but I have that feature now. Thanks for the tip.

    Interesting is that this feature has been in Outlook for Mac for several months. Even in an O365 tenant.

    Confirming I don't see it in Outlook.com. (This would be a cool addition!) - Send doesn't have a drop-down at the moment.

    Every time there's an Outlook story, you then have to carefully check which one of the many versions it applies to. Sadly it's rarely the one most people are probably using.

    Either way, I went back to Gmail where the super handy 'send and archive' feature just makes things slicker and cleaner than Outlooks default of leaving the email sitting there. That and it's lack of any real Contacts customization like coloured labels etc.
