Among email clients, Microsoft Outlook (previously known as Hotmail) has become an integral part of various organizations and the service has been around for many years.

It is widely used for managing emails, calendars, contacts, and tasks. Additionally, it comes with various beneficial features too including the emoji reactions.


But it seems that it lacks the basic ‘Recall email’ feature with the help of which a message you send is retrieved from the mailboxes of recipients who haven’t yet opened it.

Outlook for Mac ‘recall email’ feature

That said, some Mac users (1,2) have been demanding a ‘recall email’ feature on Outlook for a really long time. This function basically gives Outlook users the ability to ‘unsend’ an email.

This is a no-brainer and really can’t fathom why it doesn’t exist as a feature in Outlook for MacOS.
Come on; it’s 2023. L et’s go, y’all are years behind in this.

Recalling an email in outlook for mac Is there any way to recall emails in outlook for mac? Also, is it possible to recall an email to outside my domain?

It is quite a helpful functionality and Outlook users on Windows can access this easily. But for some reason, Microsoft has chosen not to add the feature to its Mac app.

This automatically becomes frustrating for users, therefore, prompting them to demand the same. Users’ resoluteness is worth noting as some are desperately trying to get this feature and are still commenting on a 10-month-old thread.

We are yet to receive a justification from Microsoft as to why the ‘recall email’ feature is still not available on Outlook for Mac.

Unfortunately, there is also no alternative that can help execute the same function as that of recall email.

We hope that the team keeps users’ reports in mind and adds the said feature at the earliest.

We’ll keep tabs on the latest development and update this article accordingly.
