Recall Message - Outlook
If you just sent an e-mail and realized that you wish you hadn't, Outlook can try to recall the message. This works if the recipient has not already opened the e-mail, and it only works with other accounts.

Step 1:
Click the Sent Items folder in Outlook as soon as possible after sending the message.

Step 2:
Double click on the message that you want to recall. Step 3:Select the Message tab.

Step 4:Click Actions from the Move group and choose Recall This Message...

Step 5:Select Delete unread copies of this message. Put a check next to Tell me if recall succeeds or fails for each recipient. Click OK.

Step 6:You will receive a notice of success or failure for the message recall.
