email time stamp

When selecting a delay send option, what will be the time stamp on the email?  Will it be the initial time the email is sent, or will it be the delayed later time, when the email is released from the outbox?  I believe that it will be the former, from a prior test I conducted a few years ago (but my memory is foggy).  If this is correct, how can one arrange to have the email time stamp be the delayed later time when the email is released from the outbox?

Hi Mark,

When you use your email to send a delayed message, the actual "Sent Time" time stamp information for that message is the compose time of the message and not the actual sent time. In order to properly validate the delay send option, we would like to confirm some information. Please answer the following:

  • Are you accessing your email via the Outlook app or through the web browser (Outlook.com)?
  • How exactly are you selecting the delay send option?
