recalling an email

how do i recall a email that I sent by mistake?

Re: recalling an email

You don't.  Once you hit the Send button it is no longer under your control.  Some webmail services like Gmail have a recall function, but all it does is delay the actual sending for a set time period after you hit the Send button---------typically not more than 30 seconds.  And it has to be enabled in the account settings in advance.
