Outlook 2003 Message Recall (Exchange Client)

I'm sure you have sent an email before and then right after you clicked on send you realized you forgot to maybe add the attachment, put in the wrong information or even sent it to the wrong person. If this was done with Internet mail then you are most likely out of luck since once you send it there is not much you can do about it. If you have done this in a business environment using Microsoft Outlook as you email client and Microsoft Exchange as your internal mail server then you may be in luck.

IWhen using Outlook 2003 in a Microsoft Exchange environment you have the option to recall e-mail messages that you have sent to other Outlook clients in the Exchange environment. This will remove the e-mail message from the users inbox unless they have read it already. This will not work with outside e-mail systems such as POP3, IMAP and webmail. You have an option to either recall the message or replace it with another message.

To recall a message do the following:
1. Click on your Sent Items folder.
2. Open the message you want to recall.
3. On the Actions menu, click Recall This Message.
4. Click Delete unread copies of this message.

To recall and replace a message do the following:
1. Click on your Sent Items folder.
2. Open the message you want to replace
3. On the Actions menu, click Recall This Message.
4. Click Delete unread copies and replace with a new message.
5.Click OK, and then type a new message and include the attachment.
6. Click Send.

** If you are sending the message to a large number of people, you may want to consider clearing the Tell me if recall succeeds or fails for each recipient check box.
