Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Cancel a Scheduled Email Message Sending in the Stock Email App in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

A couple weeks back, an insider sent me an email to ask the way to cancel the sending of a scheduled email message. FYI, a scheduled email message will be placed in the scheduled outbox folder before it'll be sent automatically at the scheduled time. So, depends on your reason, there are two actions that can be taken to cancel the sending of a scheduled email message. First, if it's because you're no longer want to send a scheduled email message then you can cancel its sending by deleting the email message. Second, if it's because you want to correct something wrong in a scheduled email message (e,g: you have accidentally set a wrong date) then you can cancel its sending by editing the email message to set a new date so that it'll be sent at the right time.


How to delete or edit a scheduled email message in the stock Email app?
You can do so by using the following steps:
  1. Open the stock Email app. If you have multiple email accounts, the Combined inbox folder will be opened by default.
  2. Tap at the top left to open up the menus.
  3. Tap Scheduled outbox folder to view all scheduled email messages. To delete a scheduled email message go to the step #4, while to edit a scheduled email message go to the step #5.
  4. Deleting a scheduled email message:
    • Check the box in the left side of a scheduled email message to select it.
    • Tap at the bottom of the screen to delete the selected email message.
    • The selected email message has been deleted.
  5. Editing a scheduled email message:
    • Tap a scheduled email message to open it.
    • Tap at the top right to open up the additional options and then tap Edit.
    • Now, you can edit your email message, for instance: you can set a new date if you have set a wrong date.
    • Once done, tap to save your changes and send the email message. The email message will be placed in the Scheduled outbox folder and will be sent automatically at the scheduled time.
