Schedule Email Responses in Calendar

If you receive an e-mail message in Outlook and you don't have time to respond to it immediately, you can easily add it to your calendar and schedule a block of time when you will be able to reply.

Step by Step

  1. Drag the message from your Inbox onto the Calendar icon on the Outlook Bar or onto your Calendar folder. This will create a new appointment item.
  2. Enter the date and time you want to reply and specify any additional options you want. (The body of the e-mail message is automatically added to the appointment.)
  3. Click Save and Close to add the appointment to your calendar.

Outlook will automatically notify you when it is time to respond to that e-mail.
