That gut wrenching feeling after clicking send on an email, only to realise it was to the wrong recipient or you forgot to attach that important file. Or the missing link. Or worst.........
Did you know you can recall the message in Outlook?
Yes, with Microsoft Outlook recall message feature you can retrieve a message that you sent from the mailboxes of the recipients who haven’t yet opened it. You can also substitute a replacement message. For example, if you forgot to include an attachment, you can retract the message, and then send a replacement message that has the attachment. Winning!
Message recall is available after you click Send and is available only if both you and the recipient have a Microsoft 365 or Microsoft Exchange email account in the same organization.
In the folder pane on the left of the Outlook window, choose the Sent Items folder.
Open the message that you want to recall. You must double-click to open the message. Selecting the message so it appears in the reading pane won't allow you to recall the message.
From the Message tab, select Actions > Recall This Message.
If you don’t see the Recall This Message command, you probably don’t have an Exchange account.
And you cannot recall a message in Outlook on the web.
Wow, that just saved your ass, if you were a donkey!
