Recalling a Message

How Do I recall an E-mail in Microsoft Outlook?

This feature requires you to use a Microsoft Exchange account. Most home and personal accounts do not use Exchange. The recipient of the mail you want to recall must also be using an Exchange server e-mail account. If the recipient has already read the message, then the recall will fail for that individual.  

  1. Within Outlook, open the message you want to recall or replace from within your Sent Items folder.
  2. On the Actions menu drop-down, click Recall This Message.
  1. Once you do, you will be prompted to choose between deleting unread copies or deleting them and replacing them with a new messageYou can also choose to receive a notice on which emails were successfully recalled.
  1. Click Delete unread copies of this message. Click OK to complete the recall.
