  • Recalling mail

    I understand that Exchange sends mail almost instantly. Is the option to retrieve the mail from Outlook dependant on how the recipient receives mail? What timescale have you got from within ESM (if any).

    Thanks

    Re: Recalling mail

    The simple thing I tell people is that once you have pressed send, the email is gone. There is a recall facility in Exchange, but the list of reasons when it doesn't work is so long that if you do try and recall it you usually fail, and the recipients know you tried to recall it because of the failure message.

    You could set an SMTP connector to deliver email on a timescale, but that is close to pointless. If you set it to deliver email every 30 minutes, that means an email sent at 24 minutes in is treated the same as an email sent at 1 minute in.

    Another option would be to change the setting in Outlook to send email immediately, but that is a client side setting.

    Simon.
