Have you ever accidentally sent an e-mail you wish you could "unsend"? Well, maybe you can.

If you use Microsoft Exchange Server as your e-mail server, and the recipient uses Outlook, you can recall the message before the person has a chance to read it.

To recall a message after you've sent it:

1. Open your Sent Items folder.
2. Double-click the message you want recalled.
3. On the Actions menu, click Recall This Message.
4. To recall the message, click Delete unread copies of this message. To replace the message with another one, click Delete unread copies and replace with a new message, click OK, and then type a new message.
5. To be notified about the success of the recall or replacement for each recipient, select the Tell me if recall succeeds or fails for each recipient check box.
6. Click OK.
