In Microsoft Outlook, the recall feature allows you to attempt to recall or replace an email message that you have sent to someone else. If the recipient has not yet opened the message, the recall feature can attempt to delete the message from their mailbox and replace it with a new message from you.
To recall an email message in Outlook, follow these steps:
Open Outlook and go to your "Sent" folder.
Locate the message you want to recall and select it.
From the "Move" group on the "Home" tab, click "Actions" and select "Recall This Message."
In the Recall Message window, select one of the following options:
Delete unread copies of this message: This option attempts to delete the message from the recipient's mailbox, and they will not be able to read it.
Delete unread copies and replace with a new message: This option attempts to delete the message from the recipient's mailbox and replaces it with a new message that you compose.
If you selected the "Delete unread copies and replace with a new message" option, a new email message window will open. Compose your message and click "Send."
It's important to note that the recall feature is not guaranteed to work. It only works if the recipient has not yet opened the original message, and it may not work if the recipient is using a different email client or has configured their mailbox in a certain way. Additionally, even if the recall is successful, the original message may still exist in the recipient's "Deleted Items" folder or in their email server's "Trash" folder.
