SendGuard’s delay feature can protect you from poorly or angrily worded Outlook emails getting sent out. SendGuard can delay the emails in your Outbox for a minute (or a longer time if you want) so that you still have time to change your mind.
At the same time, SendGuard gives you the option to send urgent emails immediately (without delaying it in your Outbox).
Best of all, SendGuard works with the SendConfirm prompt which is used to review and confirm recipients and attachments before emails are sent out.
