    Recall message notification (Outlook 2000 SR3)

    Does anyone have any information on the logic behind the Message Recall Notification that user B gets when user A attempts to recall a message they sent them? One would think that, if a message is embarrassing enough to have to recall, you'd want as little attention drawn to that fact, much less a SECOND message informing the recipient of it. ?!? Anyway....I suppose there is no way to turn that off, eh?

    There is no way to hide the recall Message that I know of. The Recall system doesn't work very well anyway; it is limited to recipients on the same Exchange server and works only if the recipient has not opened the message. I think, not completely sure, that the only time that it's invisible to recipients is when the recipient does not have Outlook running (including being logged off) during the time that the message and Recall are sent. Anecdotally, most Recalls I see are not for embarrassing reasons, but have to do with errors or rapidly changing circumstances.

    Instead of relying on Recall, you'll just have to be perfect. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Well, yes, I've seen errors, etc. too. I'm just surprised that I can't find any information on WHY they designed it that way.

    For now, perfection will have to do. <img src=/S/sarcasm.gif border=0 alt=sarcasm width=15 height=15>
