How to Boomerang (Snooze) an email
Use Boomerang to take messages out of your inbox until you actually need them. At the time you choose, we'll bring it back to your inbox, marked unread, flagged, or even at the top of your message list. Boomerang can be used after selecting an email from your Inbox or opening the email in a new window.
How to Snooze an email
Select the message you'd like to return to your inbox at a later time and click the
Boomerang button in the ribbon.
You can choose to have the message return only if you receive no reply, or to include a note as a reminder to yourself when it comes back.
Choose when you'd like the message to return to your Inbox - choose from one of the default times, or type in a specific time in the input field at the bottom of the menu and click
Your email will be stored in the
Boomerang folder until the scheduled delivery time. You can see the current scheduled delivery time in the taskpane by clicking the
Boomerang button in the ribbon and clicking
