Do you know that gmail has a great new feature? Apparently, for up to five seconds after you send out an email you can press 'undo-send' and it comes right back to you. Suddenly, I picture my life getting a whole-lot-simpler. *grin*

Its like recall of outlook yo. But 5 sec is way too low. BTW what kinda emails you send dude? And to what peepal yo.

Outlook has a recall? Tell me more.

And it matters not what kind of emails I send. What matters is that there are some emails I send out that ought not to be sent.

Impulsiveness comes with a price, my love. :P

I just ROFLed at your IT ignorance.
Go to your sent items, double click the message. It will open as message i.e. msg format sent mail.

Go to Actions, there at bottom you will see Recall this message and resend this message.

Recall will delete all copies of email in all recipient inboxes, provided that they are on the same EXCHANGE SERVER. Otherwise it won't for example if customer has different domain.

PS: Why is it that me and anon are only people who care about you.

Don't make fun of my IT deficiencies. I have been told that I'm a lot more with it than most girlies! :P

I just found the recall function. I'm super-impressed. This is fabulous. I am a happy bunny right now.

Except what's all this about same exchange servers? Seems mighty suspicious to me! :S

Xeb said...

Ps: It's true. You and Anon are the only people who care about me. What-a-sad-life-I-lead. Haina?

Thoth said...

Like totally.
So yeah exchange server means, if my email id is totalhandsomeguy@ibm.com and your id is like sadlifeleadingtotallynothot@microsoft.com and i send a email to you and my friend funpartylovinghookinghandsomeguyswithhotterchicks@ibm.com, and then recall the message then the message from microsoft domain won't be deleted while all messages from ibm inboxes will be deleted. See how good i am at explaining things.

PS: Sigh, i shouldn't know any sadlifeleaders.
PPS: No, that is not my real email id neither i work for ibm.

poisson said...
