So - bad news/good news.

OWA 2010 does not inherently include a recall. However, there is a free extension you can use with OWA that adds this feature at

There is a video on how to install it and recall the message here:

Unfortunately, this is the best I have to offer since it doesn't appear recall is a part of OWA. However, if you can configure MS Outlook to open your OWA mail, there is a feature in Outlook to recall a message built in, if you have that available.

I was able to verify this as I was using my own company's OWA to research and see if a recall is built in natively, which unfortunately it is not, which was corroborated by what I researched on it.
