Hi, SWHosting.  

Yes, both are possible.  What you need to do is add an Outlook Date Control to control toolbox.  That will provide the date functionality you see for the left combobox.  For the right (time) combobox you can use a normal combobox that's populated with time values.  You then need to write a little code that is triggered when either control value changes and inserts the result into the defer until field.  

Do you have any experience customizing Outlook forms?

As BlueDevilFan rightly says ... u can create a custom Outlook form and have a date control pasted on it.

Mail items in Outlook can have a deferred delivery time set through this...
oMail.DeferredDeliveryTime = "22-Dec-2010 10:00 PM"

There may not be a really quick way... but on the other hand Custom Outlook Forms are pretty easy (all the more as u have programming background). I would guess u would need couple hours to perfect the form u need.

Here is a simple step by step article
