How to recall an email in Outlook

Maybe you impulsively sent a mean email to someone. Or, maybe you sent a work email and just forgot to attach a document that your co-workers need.

If you want a way to take it back, you’re in luck — if you’re using Outlook, that is. That’s because the email client has a built-in solution for situations like this: The option to recall emails. An email recall can stop a recipient from seeing an incomplete, angry, or otherwise bad email you sent.

Follow the instructions below if you want to recall an email in Outlook.

If you also want to know how to delay your emails in Outlook (to prevent accidentally sending out such emails in the future), scroll past the recall instructions to view a guide on how to do just that.

Note: These instructions won’t work with the web-based version of Outlook — they only apply to the desktop client. Also, they only work if you and the recipient use a Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft 365 account within the same organization. Recalls in Outlook won’t work with recipient email addresses from outside of the sender’s organization.

How to recall Outlook emails

Step 1: Open your Sent Items folder and look for the email you want to recall — it should be at the top of the list. You have to double-click on this email to fully open it before moving to the next step.

Step 2: Click the Message tab on the toolbar to make it active. Next, navigate to the Move section and click the More Move Actions button designated with a letter and an envelope, as shown below.

Step 3: Click the Recall This Message option on the drop-down list.

Step 4: A pop-up window appears on your screen. Here, you have two options: Delete Unread Copies of This Message or Delete Unread Copies and Replace With a New Message. You’ll also see an option to have Outlook notify you if the process succeeds or fails.

Select your option(s) and click the OK button to continue.

If you deleted the message, congratulations! If you want to replace it, continue on to step 5.

Step 5: If you choose to create a replacement, Outlook opens a second screen so you can revise the message. As you compose your new email, Outlook recalls your old message and displays a notification (if you selected that option). Just click the Send button when you’re done with the revised message.

The most common Google Hangouts problems and how to fix them

When technology works right, it enriches our lives and can make previously tiresome tasks easier to deal with. But when it doesn’t work, most of us get frustrated and don’t know where to start troubleshooting. If you’ve had trouble with Google Hangouts, we’re here for you.

Having used it for quite some time, we’ve put together our list of the most common issues with Google Hangouts and how to fix them. Whether you can’t get your camera connected or have glitches while inviting new friends, you can find out how to correct them here.

I can’t send a message from my computer, or I can’t make or receive calls

Messaging and calling are the core experiences of Google Hangouts, and it really can be frustrating if these functions aren’t working properly. No need to worry, though, as there are some fixes for this problem.

For sending and receiving messages

Typically, when you can’t send a message from Google Hangouts on your computer, the error could be related to a server problem. As you send your message, it won’t go through to the receiver, and you’ll see a red circle with an exclamation mark in the middle. If this is the case, you’ll want to check your internet connection on your device and try sending the message again. We have a guide that can help. You can also try connecting to another website first to see if your internet connection is solid.

If you get this error, your message might not be stored in your conversation history. The message might also not show on other devices. Finally, if your contact isn’t online, they might not see the message when they sign in.

If you’re still experiencing problems, the issue might be related to Google’s own Hangouts servers. Google recommends that you wait for a few minutes, then try sending the message again.

You also can try signing out and signing back in. You can do this by clicking your Profile Picture on the top-right corner of the screen and clicking Sign Out.

For making and receiving calls

Before we get into making and receiving calls in Hangouts, here’s a bit of useful background information on the service: Google has said that there are situations in which someone simply would not be able to make or receive calls via what they refer to as classic Hangouts.

Namely, that users with Google Voice for G Suite accounts provided by their school or workplace would not have access to calling features via classic Hangouts.

Instead, they are expected to receive calls via Google Voice.

Furthermore, Google has also stated that the phone calls feature currently in classic Hangouts “will be turned off in early 2021,” and that if U.S. customers wish to make calls after the feature is turned off in 2021, they can continue to do so by upgrading to Google Voice.

In the meantime, those who don’t want to switch to Google Voice or those who are non-U.S. customers can still use the calling feature in Hangouts for the rest of the year but not thereafter.

Apple reportedly aiming to build an electric car for 2024 launch

Apple appears to be revving up EV-focused Project Titan again after a report suggested the company is looking to launch an electric vehicle with autonomous capabilities in 2024 — though pandemic-related delays could push this to 2025.

The vehicle could also feature “breakthrough battery technology,” Reuters reported on Monday after speaking to people with knowledge of the matter.

Project Titan has been in and out of the news for the last six years or so; we last reported on the project about two years ago — and also pointed to a 2023 to 2025 timetable, citing a slew of reports suggesting Apple has been researching the possibility of building such an automobile.

True to form, the tech company itself has mostly kept quiet on the subject, though it has acknowledged in the past that it’s researching “autonomous systems.”

According to Reuters’ sources, the vehicle would be built “for the mass market.”

The report notes how this would be in stark contrast with companies like Waymo and GM-owned Cruise, which have been moving toward the development of ridesharing services using its self-driving cars. However, the approach would be more similar to Tesla, which has had success with its own EVs that include autonomous features.

It’s of course impossible to know how regulations governing self-driving cars will look four years from now, so Apple’s autonomous kit could be incorporated gradually and unlocked as rules are relaxed.

It sounds like Apple is focusing heavily on the battery design, too, with an insider claiming the technology could drastically cut the cost of batteries while also offering improved range on current designs.

Reuters says Apple is considering a unique mono cell design that “bulks up the individual cells in the battery and frees up space inside the battery pack by eliminating pouches and modules that hold battery materials.”

Rather than set up the manufacturing facilities itself to build the car, Apple is thought likely to partner with another company to get it made.

Reuters also points out that there’s still a possibility Apple could scale back its ambitions by instead providing its autonomous technology to an established automaker, meaning the much-anticipated “Apple car” may never show up.

Reports in recent years suggest Apple’s interest in electric cars with autonomous features has been somewhat sporadic, with the Project Titan unit believed to have laid off around 200 employees in early 2019.

A spokesperson at the time suggested the company still had a strong interest in autonomous technology, however, saying: “We continue to believe there is a huge opportunity with autonomous systems, that Apple has unique capabilities to contribute.”

Digital Trends has reached out to Apple for comment on Monday’s report and we will update this article if we hear back.
