Last week a staff member sent an email to a company wide distribution list.

After sending the email they realized they wanted to recall the message. The

message recall seemed to work 50/50.

Our enviorment has two 2003 Exchange servers and one 2007 (all fully

patched). 98% of our users on Outlook 2003 connected to Exchange with MAPI.

Are their any known bugs, gotcha's, or miss configuraiton's that could help

explain the 50% success rate?

Thanks,

No bugs, that I am aware of. However, even in an environment where recall is

possible, I believe that the recall only works in the case where is it

received before the recipients open the email. If the recall arrives too

late, it fails. Given the nature of email, and the way recall works, I'd say

a 50% success rate is about right.

50/50 is a very good recall rate. So many things can cause it to fail that

the success rate is often very low.
