    I know you can do it in outlook, but is there a way to recall an email sent through hotmail if the recepient hasn't opened it yet?

    Does this work on any e-mail provider (like from my Outlook (Gmail, POP3) to someone else's Gmail/XYZ (web-based)), or only on Outlook (like from my Outlook (Gmail, POP3) to someone else's Outlook (XYZ, POP3))? The service (Gmail/Yahoo!/etc) has to support it too? If yes, which ones do?

    I believe, you can only do it with Outlook when sending to a recipient on a local domain Exchange server and then only if the recipient has not picked up mail from their folder. If the outgoing mail is destined for a POP3 mailbox, I don't think there is ANY way to recall it.

    The option to "recall" is not there for me. Does anybody have that option:confused:

    steve_p, it works ONLY under circumstances mentioned by ScuderiaConchiglia: 1) you must have use MS Outlook with Exchange, 2) the recipient must be on the same local Exchange domain, 3) he must have not read the e-mail yet.
    one more thing to add: the recepient gets BOTH, original e-mail and the recall. if the recepient reads & accepts the recall first, then it works as supposed. but not if the recepient gets to the original e-mail first (for example when you go through your unread mail from oldest to newest, of course you open the original e-mail first.)

    OK...But, technically speaking, can this recall thing be actually done? Be it from Outlook or from any of the web-based mail services? I am not technically oriented, thus would like to know...

    Thanks
