Simple.  You can't.  If you know the person you sent it to, you can break into their house, check their email, delete it, and then empty deleted items.  Otherwise, it's going to the address after you hit the Send button.

If you address an email to address@hotmail.com, say a bunch of mean stuff, and hit the send button it's gone.  If you change your mind one millisecond after hitting the send button (other than cancelling the connect prompt or closing your ISP connection) you can't change it.
This can be done with a fair amount of success if you are on Exchange Server and send something internal.

And that someone would sell you a body of water in the Mojave desert, also.  It can't be done.
Logically, how could it be done?  Your message goes through 5, 10 or 15 different servers before it reaches it's destination.  You would need to know the exact route and follow that route to retrieve it.

I think the reason you were told you can recall a message is that when you are in a corporate environment and using and Exchange server, you can recall using Outlook.  However, you can only recall successfully IF the receipient hasn't opened it.  Otherwise, it is a done deal.

When you are using an ISP - it is gone.  Lots of people have done hasty e-mailing and regretted it later.  Chalk it up to lesson learned.

ok if someone use Exchange Server, how can we get back the email before the receipent open it?

slink9Commented:
It's not if someone uses Exchange Server.  It is if you send an internal message through YOUR Exchange Server to someone else on YOUR Exchange Server then you MAY be able to recall it.  If you are using Outlook Express YOU CANNOT DO IT.
If you are using Outlook and you are connected to an Exchange Server and you send an email to an internal user also connected to that same Exchange Server and they have Outlook running and they haven't opened the message and it's not Friday the 13th and raining outside you MAY be able to recall the message.  In that case you would follow the article I posted.

If it is an exchange server and you happen to know the exchange admin, then just have him/her open the user's mailbox and delete the message.  That is all.
