Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer.

Thank you for your question. I will do my best to assist you.

I am sorry to see you in such a situation , unfortunately the recall feature is only supported by Microsoft's proprietary Exchange system, and it only works if you and the recipient are both using Exchange Server email accounts.

iCloud does not use Microsoft Exchange - it uses the industry standard IMAP protocol for email, So it is not possible to recall an email from icloud.
