Recalling a Message

Reader rating: 5 out of 10


Sometimes you may wish that you never sent the message that you just sent. If you no longer need your recipient to read it, you can Recall the message. This feature allows the message never to be read by the recipient. Please note that this will only work if the recipient hasn't already opened the message.

Recalling a Message

1. Open the Sent Items folder by clicking it from the Outlook Shorts bar or from the Folder List.

2. Double-click the message you wish to recall.

3. Click the Actions menu, and click "Recall This Message..." from the menu that appears.

4. You can now select from two options. You can delete any unread copy of this message from the recipient(s) Inbox, or you can replace the sent message with another message.

5. We recommend that you keep the check box checked, as Outlook will notify you letting you know if the Recall was successful or not.

6. Click OK. If you selected to replace the message, you will be prompted to type a new message.

7. Your message will then be recalled.
