    Only if you are using an exchange server to handle your email, and then only from compatible isp's.
  • People normally only ask this question in December, the day after drunkenly firing off a company-wide rant following the boozey Christmas office party.

    No I can't; although to be fair my memory has always been shocking. Sorry.

  • You can recall an email, using Exchange, provided the recipient hasn't opened the email.

  • I don't think it is possible if the recipient is using Mac OS.

    If it is an internal email sent via Microsoft Exchange and it hasn't been opened you can recall it. The recipient will normally get notification of the recall.

    If it is anything else (Sent to the Interweb, Hotmail, gmail, Outlook express, Entourage etc) you can kiss it goodbye.

    As with exchange, you can do the same with Groupwise, and possibly a number of other corporate typed email systems. As long as the email is sent within that system and the recipient hasn't read it or in some way downloaded it yet.

    It's ok, Sleazy, I deleted it as soon as I'd read it. But just for the record: No you can't! Not now! Not tomorrow! Not ever! You dirty beast! :lol:
