Recalling a Message in Outlook
Have you ever sent out an email message
only later to realize that you have made some silly spelling mistake, or
forgot to add an attachment? You notice this mistake mere seconds after
hitting the send key. Now you have to hope that nobody notices the
mistake. Luckily Outlook has a solution!
It is important to note that messages will only be replaced if they have not been opened. If a user has forwarding set up, or checks their mail via a third party client a replacement will not be made. The user will instead receive both the original message, and the replacement message. You can find a more detailed explanation of these rules in the Microsoft Office Help Files.
