In Outlook, you can compose an email and schedule it to send later using the Delay Delivery option. In case the composed email remains in the Outbox folder even after the scheduled delay period, then it might be due to two main causes. They are: 

  • Outlook runs in Cached Exchange mode 
  • Outlook has failed to run at the scheduled time of the deferred delivery 

If Outlook delay delivery is not working, check whether the Do not deliver before option is enabled. If yes, disable it since this option blocks the delay delivery feature from working properly.
