There is a feature in outlook that allows you to recall the message and it tries to delete the first email that was sent. But as far as I am aware its only able to delete emails that are delivered to an exchange server.

see http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA010917601033.aspx for further details

The message recall function within Outlook only functions for "local" messages on Exchange - in that the message will be deleted "locally".

If the message has left your local Exchange server then the recall message is simply sent as a normal email message telling the recepient that the sender wishes to "recall" their earlier email.

Basically once a message has left your server there is no way to stop it!

On Exchange 2003 with Outlook 2003 or 2007, you can recall a message or delete from recepients mailbox by....
1.  Going to your sent items
2.  Under other actions (in Outlook 2007), select Recall message
3.  You will have couple options to recall the message from there.

I don't quite remember how to go about in Outlook 2003 but I do know that there is also an option in Outlook 2003.  

Good and hope it works.
