Recall function in Outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know there is a bulit-in "Recall Message" feature in Outlook. However, there are a lot of limitations, somethingl like: The emails must be unread, Outlook versions, on-premise/oncloud. I'd like to develop a funtion that can 100% make sure the "Recall" works in all the conditions.

  • You can't - the receiving client is free to ignore any requests, be that a read receipt, or a recall.

  • Thanks Dmitry.

    Hi AutoMan,

    As Dmitry said, you can't do this. Since there are several conditions which must be met for the Recall feature to work.

    For more information, you can refer to the following link:

    Recall a sent message (and why it will probably fail)

    Hopefully it helps you.
