Microsoft Outlook.com is known for supporting great features and sending emails quickly. However, many users don’t know that there is also a way to recall or delay emails in Microsoft Outlook. There is no need to install an add-in or extension for this feature; users just need to create a rule which runs automatically in the background and delays sending their email. This feature is very useful if users often make mistakes and want to check their email even after sending it.
