I have searched my Outlook 2010 mail options and cannot find the times send option.  I do not want my sent immediately, I want to hold it for 10 minutes; to avoid accidental posting.

I don't see that option.No option
I realize it says; "in the message" but, if I could find the option, wouldn't creating a setting "in the message" only apply to the message that is open?

Good grief!  It used to be so simple!  The more I use Outlook the more annoyed I am by it.  For example, MS doesn't provide a decent backup utility; I talked to Outlook support team and they tried to Add the backup utility, and couldn't.  They apologized!  You would think, with all the data; sigs, rules,  quick steps, etc that a decent backup option would have been provided in an upgrade by now.  Trying to recover from a HD crash, and move the settings from my other computer has been a nightmare; I've lost all my Contacts categorizations, all my quick steps, and had to edit half my sigs because on of the fonts I used in missing from 2010!
