Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com.To Retract an email, depends on a few things.First, is the email provider.....what is your provider? What I'm asking....is what comes after the @ symbol in your email address..The second is the Email client (such as MS outlook, or Mozilla Thunderbird) to send the RETRACTION notice. So, which email program do you use..if any?Browser based email is also possible for retraction, but nt always..Thirdly.....you are correct....if the recipient reads, or opens the email.....then, it would not matter if you retracted it at that point....and some providers don't allow retraction AFTER the email ahs been opened.

BT internet is the provider. I don't know whether I use an email client - how do I find out?
Mac Support Specialist: Quiksilver07070, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
You saidBT internet is your provider.......so what comes after the @ symbol in your email address?.FOr example....mine would***@******.*** what is yours?.Also, an email client is any software program you install (or is already installed) that you use to access your email. Web Browsers like Internet Explorer or Firefox or Chrome DO NOT COUNT.Th most common email client is called Microsoft Outlook.

@btinternet.comIs the client Safari?
Mac Support Specialist: Quiksilver07070, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
No, Safari is a Web Browser.Safari is a program you use to SURF the internet....but you can also login to your email provider, and check email.Safari is quite useful.Mac Mail would be an Email client on your computer..Now, please allow me a few minutes to gather the information about retracting an email using BTinternet service.Please stand-by

Unfortunately BT internet has been joined with Yahoo, and now uses Yahoo EMail servers..Took me awhile to find this all out.As company mergers can be complicated and confusing....especially technology companies or ISP's.Anyways, the long and short of it is....NO....its NOT possible to RETRACT, or UNsend an EMail once it has been sent using BT/Yahoo email....Unfortunately..Sending an email is kind of like mailing a first class letter at the post office. Once it is on it's way, you are not able to stop the process.One thing you can try - is sending the person 20 emails that are blank, with the same subject. When they open the first few, they may just delete the rest thinking it was an error. (This works if they have not opened the email yet.).The only way a recall for a sent email works, is within a closed Outlook/MS Exchange email system.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
