So what does Recall option actually do? You can use it to delete the copy of your email from the recipients inbox or use it to delete a copy and replace it with a new message. The first option can be used if you send an email to a recipient by mistake, while the second option can be used if you forgot to include an attachment or any additional information.

Please note that it can only delete/replace emails that are unread, if the recipient have read the email then Outlook 2010 cannot delete/replace the email. Also note that this option will work in corporate environment only, if you send an email to Hotmail, GMail, Yahoo, etc address then this option will not work.
