Outlook Rule on Delaying E-Mail is Not Working

Hello:

I'm using Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 and, specifically, Outlook version 14.0.7113.5005 64-bit.  I have one of many workstations here at my firm, and my firm runs on Exchange, as well.

I wanted to test an Outlook rule, prior to testing it at a customer site of ours.  The rule is to delay the sending of an e-mail by two minutes and to place that e-mail into the "Drafts" folder while waiting during that two-minute period.

I tested this by sending the e-mail to myself.  The e-mail successfully went into the Drafts folder, but (a) did not contain the attachment that I placed inside and (b) experienced a delay in delivery of only about five seconds--not two minutes.

Do you have any ideas as to why the delay did not quite work and why there was no attachment?  Could it be because I was sending the e-mail to myself?

Thanks!
