Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I already responded in another feed, but I wanted to respond here to make sure you received my message. I do apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to recall messages once they are already in your customer's inbox. We completely understand why you would like to recall messages though, so I would like to track your feedback on this!
I would love if CC would implement this. I just made a mistake and wasn't able to do anything about it but send a second email as an apology. I know that other email services allow for this sort of thing and would really appreciate CC doing the same thing.
Hello @shanetbarclay ,
If an email is currently scheduled, it can be cancelled, but if it's already been sent out, we are unable to recall the email at all. Essentially, it's tantamount to us hacking into the recipients' inboxes to remove it, or would require us to explicitly reach out to the plethora of email clients (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, etc.) to ask them to try and remove the email.
Some ESPs may retain a sending delay as a way to provide last-minute "undo's" for their customers, but generally speaking this is not a common practice industry-wide. This is why we encourage using test sends, previews, spell checking, etc. to ensure your emails are good to go before they're scheduled or sent right away.
