Query About "Delay Delivery" Function

I am using Outlook 2016 app (Office 2016) on my desktop computer and I want to send an e-mail at a specific date and time. I'm not sure how this works. I'm sending from a @outlook.com e-mail address to a @upcmail.ie (a local broadband provider).

When I create the e-mail and then select Options>Delay Delivery, and then set a date and time in the future by choosing the "do not deliver before" function and click on "Close" - what exactly do I do next?

The mail is still open. Do I click on "Send"? And if I do what exactly happens to the mail?

Does it get sent from my PC to the server and wait there? Or does it stay on my PC and wait there until the elected time?

What I'm really trying to understand is whether I will have to have my PC switched on and Outlook open for the delayed e-mail to be sent, or can I set it up, close Outlook, log off my PC - and it will still get delivered even if I don't log on to my PC again until well after the requested delivery date/time?

Would anything in Office ProPlus inherently break these macros? Diane, I'm using one that you wrote for me yeaaars ago. Fine in 2016, but when I went to ProPlus. Nada. Not even sure that the Macros recognizes the draft message as a mail object. Thoughts anyone?

No, it should not break it. Make sure macro security is set to low - if you signed the macros with a digital signature it will need to have the signature removed and sign it again.

With delay delivery not working or macros not working? (Or both.)



If the problem is with a macro not working, do you receive any error messages? In The Editor's Tools > Options > General tab, tick "Break on Unhandled Errors".
2779



If you post the macro here, i will take a look and test it.
