To give yourself a bit more time to correct mistakes when you send out emails, here’s a neat little trick for Outllook 2013 from HBR:
- Go to the “Home” tab and click on the “Rules” drop down
- Choose “Manage Rules and Alerts”
- Under “Email Rules” choose “New Rule” and under “Start from a blank rule” click on “Apply rule on messages I send.” Click “Next,” which will show conditions — you don’t need to choose any of these, just click “Next” again.
- On the final menu (the “Actions” page), check “Defer delivery by _ minutes” and fill in the blank. I choose two minutes, because it often takes me a minute to realize what I’ve forgotten!
- Click “Next,” and fill in any exceptions to your new rule. Then, click “Next,” and “Finish” (Don’t forget this last step, or all your clicks will be for naught.)
