The Send button is missing from a delayed delivery message in Outlook

Velja za: Outlook 2013Microsoft Outlook 2010Exchange Server 2013 Enterprise


When you open a message in the Microsoft Outlook Outbox to which a delayed delivery was applied, you cannot edit the message body, and the Send button is missing from the message:

Delayed Delivery message without Send button


This behavior occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • You are connecting to a Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 mailbox.
  • You are connecting by using an Online Mode Outlook profile.


To work around this issue, close and then reopen the affected message. After you take this action, you will be able to edit and re-send the message as expected.

Note If you open and close the message but do not reopen the message and then click Send again, the message will remain in the Outbox and will not be sent at the delayed delivery time. A message that is set correctly for delivery will appear with an italic subject line and with an outgoing message icon, as follows:
