Tried to recall an email, not sure if it has succeeded

Copper Contributor

Hello everyone,


Sorry for being an inconvenience. I tried to recall and email I sent earlier today but after awhile I wasn't informed if the recall has pass or failed. How do I check if it even attempt to recall?


Thank you

I am an independent advisor investigating this inquiry.  


Here is a link providing five scenarios on the recall feature.

Recalls only work if you are recalling a message sent to another user in your organization's Exchange server. And then it's hit or miss because Outlook needs to process the recall, before it is read.
I have more information on it in this article -
