An Outbox is a term used to describe the location or folder where e-mail is stored before being sent. Below is a short list of some of the reasons why the Outbox is used.
Reasons for the Outbox
- Allows an e-mail to be composed and stored even if there is no Internet connection. Once the computer has an Internet connection, it can then send all e-mails in the Outbox.
- Gives the user time to review, edit, and delete messages before they are sent.
- Allows the user to respond to all their e-mails in bulk, which can help prevent interruptions.
