How to Recall an Email in Lotus Notes

E-mail Concept image by wayne ruston from

Recalling e-mail messages is the most widely used feature of IBM Lotus Notes and Domino V8. By default, this feature is enabled on the client as well as the server side of Lotus Notes. By using this feature, you can recall your mail messages that were sent due to some error before the sender opens it. By recalling the messages sent to the recipients, the message is deleted from their inbox and the server almost as if you had never sent the message at all.

Open Lotus Notes and click the "Sent" tab on the left hand side of the screen. A list of sent messages will display on the screen.

Select the message that you want to recall by clicking on it once.

Click on the "Recall Message" button displayed above the Sent Messages list. A Recall Message dialogue box will appear.

Select the contacts from whom you want to recall the message.

Click on the "OK" button. An acknowledgement dialogue box will display.
