I am looking for a tool to find sent emails within an organization and delete them.

Scenario.
The user sent the e-mail and would like to withdraw it after a while so that it would not be visible to the recipient.
Is it possible ?
Will e dsicovery in M365 solve the problem?

Hi @pawfest83 

 

In Office 365, you can only recall sent emails if the following is true:

 

  • Both the mailboxes are in the same Office 365 Organisation
  • The recipient has not opened the email.

 

You also cannot recall a message that is protected by Azure Information Protection, and also cannot do so through OWA.

 

More information here:

 

Recall or replace an email message that you sent - Office Support (microsoft.com)

 

If I'm understanding your request correctly, then no, I do not believe there is a tool to do what you want.
