How do I unsend an email on
Hello, Dan. On most email systems it is not possible to "un-send" an email. Once it has gone out of your system it is delivered essentially instantly. Some systems (e.g., Outlook) have the ability to "recall" an email, but that simply sends a message to the receiver indicating the recall, and they are still free to open it. Check your outgoing folder to make sure it actually got sent, but if it did there is probably nothing you can do.
