Can I use the "Delivery Delay" option when using Outlook via the VDS?

Can I use the "Delivery Delay" option when using Outlook via the VDS?

Aimed at: Edinburgh Napier’s staff

When creating a new message within MS Outlook there is an option to "Delay Delivery" enabling users to delay the delivery of email until a later date:

In order for the "Delivery Delay" option to work, MS Outlook must be connected and open at the assigned delivery time for the delayed delivery message to be sent (this will work when the PC is left on and locked, with MS Outlook running). 

However it will not work when accessing MS Outlook via the Virtual Desktop Services (VDS) as Cached Exchange Mode is used when accessing MS Outlook via the VDS and it cannot be left connected and open.

As a workaround you can save the message as a Draft until you're ready to send the message.
