Learn how to perform additional tasks on an email before sending it, such as changing the priority, tracking receipts, delaying delivery, and spelling and grammar checks.
- [Jess] I'm all done typing an email to Devon, however, in between being done with my email and clicking the send button, I can set some options on the email itself. This is an email to Devon, telling him to be on the lookout for another important message. As it's important, I want him to know about it, so I'm going to change the priority of the email by clicking the red exclamation mark to give it high importance. This means when it arrives in Devon's inbox, it'll have a red exclamation mark next to it. Next I'll head over to the options tab.
Right now in the email, I can see the to and the cc field, I can also click to add a bcc field if I need one. Whoever's in that field will also receive a copy of the email, without knowing who else is getting a copy. I can also request tracking receipts for this email. If I click request receipts, I can be notified when Devon reads the email, or if I just wanna be sure it was delivered successfully. I can do a spelling and grammar check on the email, and if I head back over to the message tab, the last thing I might wanna do is delay delivery of the email.
This is useful if I'm sending a message to someone in a particular time zone and I don't wanna send it too early in the morning, maybe I don't want their phone to chirp and wake them up at 5:00 a.m., or if it's for something that's at a later date, but I wanna get the thought in the email outta my head now, I can send it at a later time. To do that, click the down arrow next to the send button and choose send later. Here's where you can choose a date and a time to send the email. I'll send it on the 23rd at nine o'clock in the morning.
I'll click the send button, I can send my message and get it out of my head.
