How to Recall an Email in Lotus Notes

Recalling email 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.
