How to recall an email in Outlook

In Outlook, you can recall an email using the following steps:

  1. Open Outlook and go to your Sent Items folder.
  2. Find the email that you want to recall and right-click on it.
  3. Select “Recall This Message” from the drop-down menu.
  4. A new window will appear, select “Delete unread copies of this message” if you want to delete the email from the recipient’s inbox, or select “Tell me if recall succeeds or fails for each recipient” if you want to be notified of the recall status for each recipient.
  5. Click the “OK” button to initiate the recall.

It’s important to note that recall may not always be successful, as it depends on the recipient’s email settings and whether or not they have already read the email. Also, the recall feature is only available for emails sent within your organization using Exchange Server.
