Suppose you've just clicked Send and you realize that a key detail in your message is wrong (for example, maybe you wrote "bored" instead of "board" when discussing the results of the last board meeting).
If you're using Microsoft Exchange Server for your e-mail, you may be able to recall the message that you just sent. If you act before a recipient reads the message, recalling it will allow you to send a corrected version to that person and avoid possible embarrassment. Here's what you would do:
In the Navigation Pane
, click Sent Items
to switch to that folder.
In the Sent Items
folder, double-click the message that you want to recall to open it.
In the open message, click Other Actions
in the Actions
group, and click Recall This Message
Note If you don't see the Recall This Message command, it's probably because you're not using Microsoft Exchange Server for your e-mail. We've included more information about how you can verify this in the Quick Reference Card at the end of this course.
