    Message Recall - why doesn't it work? (OL2000 C/W \ EX2000)

    I have searched for previous threads on this, and have only found lots (and lots) of comments saying it is flaky without any kind of reasons why. Experience confirms this and MS do not give a reason why Recalling messages is so unreliable <img src=/S/cranky.gif border=0 alt=cranky width=18 height=25> . (Flakiness: eg. even when Outlook closed, it will not recall automatically; instant failure even when not read. Intermittently, blah blah)

    I have found one comment on a previous post, which says Recall will only work with recipients on the same exchange server. Is this true? (and please spare me all the different permutations of software which will interfere - I am referring to native EX2000, native W2000 domain, OL2000 C/W on W2000, internal mail only. So if it going to work it is going to work here :

    Recall is specifically designed to work within a single Exchange Server setting. HTH

    Have you spoken to your network admin about this problem? Recall works under very specific constraints: the message has to be unopened by the recipient, for starters. I believe Outlook has to be open in order for it to be successful also.

    My only experience with this feature was when it first arrived on the scene with Outlook 98 some time ago. I found that rather than relying on it for anything, it was easier to set up delayed sending, so messages did not go out until I told them to by pressing F5 or Send/Receive.
