email recall

If I send an email to someone incorrectly, is there a way to recall it?

 

Thank you, Kathy

Sorry, there isn't.  Once it's sent, it's out of your hands.



I am not a Comcast employee; I am just a customer, volunteering my time to help other customers here in the Forums.

Re: email recall

gmail gives you  10 seconds to recall.....Must not be that hard to include with Comcast email!!

Re: email recall

That Gmail feature is not really a recall.  All it does is delay the sending for the 10 seconds.  Once it's actually gone there is no way to bring it back.  There is no plan to implement anything similar in the Comcast webmail that I am aware of.

Yes, I know that the email goes after 10 seconds but it can give you that time to just discard that email if you realize that you wrote something you should not have or it's addressed wrong... AOL used to have something like a recall but they stopped that feature, I believe.. Thanks for your reply!
