Have you ever sent an email and then immediately wished you could take it back? Maybe you accidentally hit “send” before you finished writing the message, or perhaps you realized that you included the wrong attachment. Whatever the reason, we’ve all been there. Fortunately, Outlook offers a feature called “Recall” that allows you to try and retrieve a message that you’ve sent. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at how to use this feature in Outlook.

Before we get started, it’s important to note that the Recall feature is not foolproof, and it doesn’t always work. There are a few conditions that need to be met in order for the feature to be successful:

  1. The recipient must be using an email client that is compatible with the Recall feature.
  2. The recipient must not have read the message yet.
  3. The recipient’s email server must be online and responding to requests.

If any of these conditions are not met, the Recall feature will not work. That being said, it’s still worth trying if you need to retrieve a message that you’ve sent. Here’s how to use the Recall feature in Outlook:

  1. Open Outlook and go to the “Sent” folder.
  2. Right-click on the message that you want to recall and select “Recall This Message.”
  3. In the “Recall This Message” window, select one of the following options:
    • “Delete unread copies of this message” – This will delete any copies of the message that have not been read by the recipient.
    • “Delete unread copies and replace with a new message” – This will delete any copies of the message that have not been read by the recipient, and it will allow you to replace the message with a new one.
  4. Click “Ok” to initiate the Recall process.

Once you’ve initiated the Recall process, Outlook will attempt to retrieve the message and delete any unread copies. If the Recall is successful, you’ll see a message in your “Sent” folder indicating that the Recall was successful. If the Recall was not successful, you’ll see a message indicating that the Recall was not successful, along with the reason why (e.g., the message has already been read by the recipient).

In addition to the standard Recall feature, Outlook also offers a feature called “Delay Delivery” that allows you to schedule a message to be sent at a later time. This can be useful if you want to give yourself a chance to double-check a message before it’s sent, or if you want to send a message at a more convenient time. To use the Delay Delivery feature, follow these steps:

  1. Open Outlook and go to the “New Email” window.
  2. Click on the “Options” tab.
  3. Click on the “Delay Delivery” button.
  4. In the “Delivery Options” window, select the “Do not deliver before” option and choose a date and time when you want the message to be sent.
  5. Click “Ok” to schedule the message to be sent at the specified time.

While the Recall and Delay Delivery features can be incredibly useful, it’s important to remember that they are not foolproof. As mentioned earlier, there are a few conditions that need to be met in order for these features to work, and there’s always the possibility that something could go wrong. That being said, these features can be a great way to give yourself a little extra peace of mind when sending important emails. So, the above steps will help you Recall an Email in Outlook.
