Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Unfortunately, no, you can not recall email messages from Macbook mail (or from Windows computer or tablet or any other device.) Once an email message is sent, it is instantly sent to the other person's email Inbox, so there is no way to recall.

Do you have any further question? And/or do you need anything else for now?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

It is similar to the way that once your postal mail is picked up by the post office, you cannot stop its delivery. Per privacy policy, the email provider is not allowed to get into the other person's email Inbox and look through or delete his/her emails. The only thing you can do is to send another email message and ask the person not to read your previous email message. When sending any email message, make sure to check carefully both the name and email address of any recipient as some names and addresses are similar.

Also, if you use Gmail email, there is an option called "Undo Send"; if you enable that option, then it will allow you to cancel sending an email message within 30 seconds of sending it. If you'd like to know more about this, please let me know.
