How and when to use the Recall feature in Outlook (and other email systems)

The Recall function in certain email systems allows senders to pull messages back if sent in error. Learn which systems this applies to and some of the stipulations with Microsoft Outlook email.

@Cerberus my experience of this in fact is something of the opposite. In most cases, at just with older versions of exchange, recalling a message sent to an external recipient and expecting it to succeed was a bit hit and miss.
If the recipient system was in fact exchange, then there was a good chance that it may succeed - although not guaranteed and this really depended on the remote mail system configuration.
If the remote system was based on Lotus Notes (and I'm really showing my age here), then you could say with almost 100% certainty that the recall request would fail.
