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.
