In the mobile app of Outlook, there is an option to snooze an email to a specific date and time. In that specific time, the email will go back to the inbox. Usefull if you are running inbox zero.

How do I find the same option in the desktop version of Outlook?

Hi @JacKonZ 

 

Kindly follow 

1. Select the email or right click the selected email 

2. Click on Follow-up > Add Reminder

This will give you the option to set reminder and snooze the email option when the reminder pops up.

If you find the above solution resolved your query don't forget mark as Official/Best Answer & like it to help the other members find it more.

@JacKonZ  Outlook desktop doesn't yet have the snooze option. You will need to outlook on the web or outlook mobile to snooze messages. 

 

If you set a flag, you'll need to move the message out of the inbox yourself if you want it out of sight until the reminder time.  

@Diane Poremsky 

Are you familier maybe with 3rd party tools that offer this for outlook?

@Faraz Shaikh 

Thank for the idea, but I already tried that, it's not easy working with those reminders.

 

I really need to sort this out, I'm inbox zero type of guy and this is really driving me crazy.
