Help!

In some company networks with their own mail servers it is possible to recall an email if the email server allows it. This is why you may see reference to this if searching online.

Unfortunately in your case it is not possible to recall an email after it has been sent. There is no time in transit and when you clicked send the email is already in the other person's inbox nearly instantaneously. So it doesn't matter if you cannot see the email on your end or you deleted from your sent folder.

I am really sorry that there is not a way to recall it completely but as I said the message is already in their inbox at this point so it is out of your accounts control. It is the same thing as if you left a voicemail for someone. You would need access to their phone to delete it.

The only thing I can suggest is you attempt to “bury” the mail you do not want them to see. You do this by sending at least 10 or 15 emails to the person with the same subject which will push down the email you don’t want them to see. Then send them an email saying your computer went crazy and they should just delete those emails. Hopefully they will never view it.

I am sorry about that but it is the truth and there is no way to recall the message.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating for providing you a quick answer!

That’s all right I just hate sounding overly confident, make sure you wierd things

I understand. If you really do not want her to see it I would just send a bunch of blank emails with the same subject if possible and then one final email that says your email had a glitch it was just sending these out and if your lucky she will not scroll to the original email and open it.
