I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can recall a e-mail in outlook, go to sent items and open the sent e-mail.

There will be a menu in Outlook ribbon named Actions, drop down the list and there is option to recall this message. There you can choose one option as below mentioned:

1. Delete unread copies of this message.
2. Delete unread copies and replace with a new message.

choose one suffice your requirement then click on OK.

Remember, once email is read you cannot recall or move to another folder. Better you use. Search-mailbox cmdlet and delete the required email from user mailbox.

There is no way that you can delete it from the exchange server. Yes if you are seeing the email in Exchange queue probably you can remove from there but chances are very less and email transaction works very fast
