Outlook - Delay the Sending of Your Emails

A few people have asked me recently about cancelling an e-mail message that they wished they had not sent.  Once the email is on the internet, it's out there for the recipient to see.

Microsoft Outlook gives false hope by including a "recall this message" option, but this only works in rare occaisions (<5%)

I use the "send every N minutes" feature in my email programs to avoid this problem (for 5 minutes anyway); it's also a good way to limit distraction by the constant barrage of of incoming e-mails. 


Does anyone know how to do this from an I-phone or blackberry?

PS: Don't forget to check your gutters in preparation for winter, a friend had 3" of water in theirs that would have damaged them over the winter.
