📧 Update: message recall in Microsoft Exchange Online - Recall
The Outlook for Windows Message Recall feature is hugely popular with users, but it does not always work so well because it is client-based. Currently, you can only recall messages via this tip.
As of January 2023, Microsoft will put an end to this and with a new feature: 59438 which has been on the roadmap.
Although Microsoft prescribes that there are still some circumstances where the recall will still not occur (such as the message being read by the recipient).
Moving recall to the cloud significantly improves recall success rate.
In addition, Microsoft now also offers an aggregated status report for message recalls, to make it easier to see for whom recalls succeeded and for whom they failed.
How to retrieve a message from Outlook Online?
In February, here come the instructions to retract a message sent with Outlook Online.
How to recall a sent message 10 seconds after sending via Outlook Online ?
Recalling a message in just the same way as in the Outlook Client does not work.
Microsoft did create the ability to count up to 10 seconds to send a message.
Select from Settings -> View all Outlook Settings
Activate the option: Undo Send in Exchange Online - Outlook Web Access. Then press save.
From now on, you have the option to click on after sending up to 10 seconds later: Undo. (Bottom)
Unfortunately, this option remains active for only 10 seconds. A good reaction time is required.
