Retrieving Email Messages

By bstefansson ·
Is there a way in Outlook 98 to retrieve a message once it has been sent? The party it was sent to has not opened it yet.

Maybe. The other person also has to be using Outlook, and I think you need to be using Exchange Server.
This is from OL2000 help, it should be similar in OL98:

Recall or replace a message you've already sent
You can recall or replace only those messages you sent to recipients who are logged on and using Outlook and who have not read the message or moved the message out of their Inboxes.

If the Folder List is not visible, click the View menu, and then click Folder List.


Click Sent Items.


Open the message you want to recall or replace.


On the Actions menu, click Recall This Message.


To recall the message, click Delete unread copies of this message.
To replace the message with another, click Delete unread copies and replace with a new message, click OK, and then type a new message.

To be notified about the success of the recall or replacement for each recipient, select the Tell me if recall succeeds or fails for each recipient check box.
Note To replace a message, you must send a new one. If you do not send the new item, the original message is still recalled.
