Recall Message - Outlook
If you just sent an email 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 email, 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.
