Delay send option
Button for "Are you sure you wish to send this e-mail" - or delayed sending so there is time to regret.
I schedule the delivery of the weekly newsletter mail through the delay delivery option through my laptop.
After hitting send, the mail reflects in the outbox until the scheduled date.
but if my laptop isn't active at the scheduled date and time, with internet connection, the mails get delayed until the laptop is active again.
how can the mail be saved on cloud so it delivers on time irrespective of the internet status on the laptop.
work on this please.

Ability to set a 5 second or other small delay time before the email is sent with an option to cancel sending to edit or delete.

I am shocked that a company like Microsoft has not included a function to schedule when a specific email is sent.
I am quite literally flabbergasted. It's almost unbelieveable. I mean, it's 2020 and Android is widely used and yet- well, would you look at that- Microsoft can't implement a feature that Google rolled out ages ago. Am I living in the Twilight Zone or what? Holy–‐

I use gmail for school and if I type a message late at night, I can set a time for it to send in the morning. I hear outlook desktop has this. but gmail has this, for free, on web and mobile. I'm thinking about switching just so I can get this feature.
Highly desirable feature.
Old Samsung phones had a feature where you could set a specific time to send an email. It would be great to see this and have the option in the outlook app. :-)

So many people work regularly in their phone these days and in the name of better mental health in the workplace/ healthier worklife balance, lets enable the same options for the app.
To be clear, the are two ideas being discussed, which can be mistakenly confused. "Fat fingers", "accidentally hit send", "didn't first check my typing, until time pressure of sending and seeing my mistake" situations are the user-error-prone situations which seem to be asking for the few- seconds delay of actual server sending, for the so to let you claim "NOOOOOOOO, wait!". Frankly that part can at least be controlled with users just taking their time to think through more fully before they execute the send (although I recognize the inadvertent send is a reality which a "quick- cancel" iron may facilitate. My (and several other voters' interests are more in line with the "delayed delivery" feature long available in desktop client application of outlook, where for a variety of reasons you want an email to be sent in the future. Developers like Zoho, in their CRM, now have the ability to delay delivery of messages. Others as well. One of the keys in mobile implementation needs to be the ability to see, either in existing "outbox", or some "future delivery" outbox, the messages that are scheduled. It's often the case that you schedule a message for days or weeks out, in the intervening time something changes between you/ recipient, and your originality crafted language must be amended...the ability on these situations to easily find and edit/ cancel the future dated message, is a must.
Hope the distinction I've drawn between the two varieties of delaying send are useful for others, in clarifying.

It is a very rare feature in email apps.

allow the user to schedule each email sending, extending an option already existing in the desktop app to the mobile app

Being able to stop sending a mail if you hit the send button accidentally or forgot to write something in it.

that isn't what she was asking. she was asking about after one has composed a message that there is a delay up to preselected seconds or minutes before it is sent out to the recipient. this feature is offered in the desktop Outlook as a Rule the user can create and works with all emails composed. Deferred delivery can also available, but must be done manually when in Option tab.
Having the opportunity to cancel email before its posted.
it has happened to me more than once that while composing the email on phone, I mistakenly click send instead of enter button on the onscreen keyboard. which is very neat to where send button is. since we cannot recall the message sent through phone this can have negative consequences.

I'm Aware that there are Scheduling Email option now in Outlook but What I'm Suggesting is option to delay Email delivery at certain time and date Automatically.
Google Applied that option lately at it's Gmail Mobile App.
