E-mail delivery during colleagues' working hours - Delayed Delivery

When you compose an e-mail in Outlook, delayed delivery shows you suggestions for scheduling e-mail delivery that matches the working hours of the recipients in their respective time zones.

This delay prevents you from bothering people when they are not actively working.

If delayed delivery is enabled, you can receive up to two daily delayed delivery suggestions.

If you want to get more than two per day, you need to sign up for the delayed delivery plan. You can sign up for the delayed delivery plan through MyAnalytics or through the Insights Outlook plug-in to get an unlimited number of suggestions for delayed email delivery to your colleagues.

The delayed delivery plan is currently available to users of Microsoft 365 or Office 365 E5 and only for the Outlook desktop app for Windows.
