Here’s the scenario: You’ve written an email, hit send, and then realized that it shouldn’t have been sent after all, for whatever reason. It may be rude, embarrassing or contain classified information. One way to go, is to issue a recall for the email in question. Here’s how:
- In Outlook, go to Sent Items
- Mark the email in question, then double-click it to open it
- In the Message tab, click
Recall This Message
Delete unread copies of this messageand click
Keep in mind that this may not work; it hinges on the server accepting the recall notice.
