create a email but schedule a diferent day or time to send it, also when the email is already sent is it possible to cancel it so the recepient wont receive it.

I use notes ver 6 and will upgrade to ver 7 soon.

i have some users that willl like to create email but change the delivery date or time so the email will be sent at a specific time or date.

also i will like to know who to cancel and email that was alredy sent so the recipient wont see it.


Regards

1) Send mail at specific date: it's not in the standard template, and it's not possible without (a lot of) additional programming. There have been more questions about this, like
    http:Q_20492359.html "Sending Mail on a Specific Date.."
    http:Q_11267555.html "Sending Email at a Future Date"
2) Cancel a mail that's been sent already: usually, impossible without access to the receiver's mail. However, you might be able to intercept the mail at any intermediate point, e.g. when you send mail from local, it is in the mail.box until you replicate or send mail; when you send mail via the server, mail might be kept in the server's mail.box for some time until sent to the Internet.

Hope this helps...

Yep. Correct. Notes isn't Exchange, it's as simple as that...  :-|

There is a third party product that emulates the exchange "unsend" : http://www.metalogic-inc.com/products/products.htm

If you are going to implement the "Sending Mail on a Specific Date"  - from the solution posted, I would suggest creating a new mail template from the original vanilla mail template - this way you can decide who has the ability to future schedule email.   I did something similar with a broadcast email database, and set this up to send announcements at 6:00 PM.  The agent would check for pending at night and again in the AM (in case of server, lan, wan interruptions)  And in case users schedule for delivery today after the agent ran...:)  (You know, in order to say, "Well, I SENT IT, but NOTES didn't send it")

In response to the 2nd question...

one of the main problems you will run into with this is that with Exchange the unread marks are on a per mailbox basis. So if the user has read the message then the admin can easily tell that. With notes, the unread marks are on a per-user basis so you will have a difficult time knowing for sure if the user has read the message or not.

Some people have written agents that have to be run by administrators and will allow you to recall a message

However, again you can't tell if they have read the message and there will not be any indication that the message was recalled like there is in Outlook
