Avoid embarrassing mistakes: How to recall an email in Outlook

Outlook Windows 10

How to recall an email in Outlook

Recalling an email in Outlook can save you from many awkward or embarrassing situations. Here’s how you can do that.

  1. Head to the Sent Items part of the Outlook app and double click the message that you want to recall.
  2. Navigate to the Message tab in the open window with the message.
  3. Head to the fourth group of options in the top menu bar under Move, and choose Recall this Message.
  4. Choose to delete the unread copy of the message on the server, or replace it with a new message.
  5. Press OK

Applies to All Windows 10 Versions

One of the most embarrassing things in life is replying to an email, and realizing you’ve replied to all, or sent out something to the recipient that wasn’t meant to see. Luckily, there is a way around this common problem. With the Outlook app as part of Office 365, you can easily recall an email — granted that you’re using a Microsoft Exchange account and the feature has been enabled by your IT department. In this guide, we’ll show you how you avoid mistakes and recall emails in Outlook.

Steps to recall an email in Outlook

The first step in recalling an email in Outlook is to head to the Sent Items part of the Outlook App. After that, you can double click the message that you want to recall. Then, you need to navigate to the Message tab in the open window with the message. You can then head to the fourth group of options in the top menu bar under Move, and choose Recall this Message.

After following the steps above, a new window with the recall a message option should have appeared. From there, you’ll have two options, both of which will require you to press on OK afterward. You can either delete the unread copy of the message on the server, or you can replace it with a new message. The recipient might have already viewed the message, so deleting the unread copy might not always work. You can, however, select the option to receive a report on if the recall was successful.

Speed is of the essence here, and you should always recall right as you realize your mistake. If all else fails, that’s where the second option comes in, allowing you to write an apology message so that the original (error) email does not get opened.

Other ways to avoid having to recall messages

Recalling messages might not always work, but there are some ways you can avoid getting into the situation. First off, you should always slow down and double-check where your emails are heading. You also can even these troubles by setting up an Outlook rule to delay emails. This ensures that your messages sent through Outlook will be delayed by a certain number of minutes, giving you a short period of time to recall messages if something were to go wrong.

You don’t have permission to create an entry in this folder in Outlook [FIX]

A large number of users have reported seeing the message You don’t have permission to create an entry in this folder when trying to change data inside their Microsoft Outlook software.

The circumstances in which this happens are the following: two profiles using different Microsoft Outlook versions created two Microsoft Exchange Server accounts. A folder is created that can be seen by both users, but only one account has permissions to access it and change the information.

This error is caused by Outlook not being able to delete the stored cache when switching between accounts on the same profile. Because the account without permission tried first to access the folder created earlier, that account has momentary ownership of the folder, so the user with permission will see the same message.

In this article, we will explore the best troubleshooting methods to solve this issue. Read on to find out more.


What to do if you don’t have permission to create an entry in Outlook folder?

1. Clear the Outlook cacheOutlook Logo - you don't have permission to create an entry in this folderOutlook Logo - you don't have permission to create an entry in this folder

  1. Save your work and close the Outlook.
  2. Double-click on the Outlook executable file in order to open it again.
  3. This will clear the cache stored in Outlook.
  4. After the restart, make sure to try and access the folder created first with the account that has access to the resource. This will give that user full ownership of the created folder, so no error will appear.

You don’t have permission to book this resource error [QUICK FIX]

A number of users have reported seeing the error message You don’t have permission to book this resource whenever they try to book a room (or other assets), by using the Outlook Exchange.

This issue is caused by migrating the room mailbox from an on-premises location to the Outlook Exchange Online service. When the move is performed, the permissions of the server need to be assigned again to avoid this issue.

This error message can cause a lot of confusion, as the initial settings of the local room mailbox seem to be in order at first glance. Even though that is the case, these features become inactive for security reasons. This protects the information stored on the servers from any third-party that wants to extract that information.

For these reasons in this article, we will explore several troubleshooting methods to deal with this issue. Please follow the steps described in this guide closely to avoid any other issues.

How to fix You don’t have permission to book this resource error?

1. Assign corresponding permissions of the room mailbox to your Exchange Online account

  1. Log into the Exchange Admin Center with your administrator account.Microsoft Office 365 admin - You don't have permission to book this resourceMicrosoft Office 365 admin - You don't have permission to book this resource
  2. Navigate to Recipient -> Resources.Microsoft Office 365 admin - You don't have permission to book this resourceMicrosoft Office 365 admin - You don't have permission to book this resource
  3. Double-click the room mailbox.
  4. Inside the pop-up window that appears, select Mailbox Delegations.
  5. Add your administrator account inside the Full Access blank space.
  6. Click on the Save button.
  7. Open Room Mailbox again and check to see if the issue persists.

Note: It is recommended that when performing these above steps, you use a private browsing session. Press CTRL+SHIFT+P for Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer. For Google Chrome press CTRL+SHIFT+N.


Send emails like a pro with these great email clients!



2. Add your account to Open Room MailboxExchangeOnline - You don't have permission to book this resourceExchangeOnline - You don't have permission to book this resource

  1. Log into your Open Room mailbox account.
  2. Select Options -> Resource Schedule page -> Add your account to the list.
  3. Inside your Outlook (with admin access) -> right-click Calendar -> select Data Properties.
  4. Inside the Permissions tab -> add the users with the appropriate access level -> click Save.Microsoft Office permissions - you don't have permission to book this resourceMicrosoft Office permissions - you don't have permission to book this resource
  5. Try to see if the issue persists.

Another possible reason for this error message could be caused by users trying to book rooms with 1 year before the preset time limit. This information can be checked by going to Portal ->Exchance -> Recipients -> Calendar -> Edit booking options.

In this article we explored a quick fix for the error You don’t have permission to book this resource when trying to reserve a room or other assets on Exchange Online.

Because this issue is caused by porting the data storage from local to cloud, the problem can be fixed by re-allowing the access for each of the users inside your Microsoft Exchange Admin Center.

Symantec Cloud Hosted Endpoint Email Alert information

I need a solution

Hey there, we have quite a number of customer’s each who have their own subscription to the symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition – Hosted Endpoint / Cloud symantec a/v product.

Any of the email alerts about blocked files/sites, viruses, licensing issues, etc go to an email address for the customer but we get them all as they are email aliases on one of our accounts. 

The issue we have, is the emails are all the same and there is no identifying information about what client it is for. The only way to figure it out, unless the computer name happens to indicate which client it is, is to open up the email headers and scroll down and find the “to” field and see the email it was sent to.

Is there a way to just embed the customer and contact name inside the email that is sent out? This seems like such a small thing, yet it’s huge for us. I am including a sample email screenshot to show you what we see, and with a generic name there is no way to know who this is for without wasting time trying to figure it out.

Thanks.

Email Recipient Exception Not Working

I need a solution

I followed the instructions at the URL below, but I am not able to exclude emails sent only to users on my internal domain.   This is on 15.5 with an endpoint running the Outlook client (Office 365 ProPlus).  The test emails I sent to myself are detected, although I have the following listed under Policy List > Configure Policy > Detection tab > Exceptions:

  • OVR_EXCEPTION_INTERNAL_EMAIL_RECIPIENT (Protocol): Protocol is Email/SMTP.
  • OVR_EXCEPTION_INTERNAL_EMAIL_RECIPIENT (Recipient): Match COMPANY_RECIPIENT.
    All recipients must match.

COMPANY_RECIPIENT is a Reusable Recipient Pattern with the company domain “company.com” listed under the URL Domains section.

I only have one policy group and one policy enabled.

Can you please let me know how to troubleshoot this further?

Thanks,
