How to recall an email in outlook

To recall an email in Outlook, follow these steps:

1. Open Microsoft Outlook and go to the “Sent Items” folder.

2. Find the email you want to recall and double-click to open it.

3. In the ribbon at the top, select the “Actions” tab.

4. Click on the “Recall This Message” option. A drop-down menu will appear.

5. Choose either “Delete Unread Copies of This Message” or “Delete Unread Copies and Replace with a New Message” depending on your preference.

6. If you select the second option, you can compose a new message to replace the recalled email.

7. Check the box next to “Tell me if recall succeeds or fails for each recipient” if you want to receive a notification about the recall status.

8. Click on the “OK” button to initiate the recall process.

Please note that the success of recalling an email depends on various factors, such as the recipient’s settings and whether they have already read the email. Additionally, this feature is only available if both you and the recipient are using Microsoft Exchange email accounts within the same organization.
