Undo Send for Outlook on the Web

Microsoft added an Undo Send feature to Outlook on the Web back in January.  Those of you who use the SCLS-supported Office 365 mail can enable the Undo Send feature for up to 30 seconds by following these simple steps.

  1. Log into your Office 365 mail.
  2. Click the Settings gear button at the upper-right.
  3. Click Mail at the bottom.
  4. Beneath the Automatic processing menu, click Undo send.
  5. Select Let me cancel messages I've sent for and select a time period from the dropdown.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Click the back arrow to go back to your mailboxes.
    Options Arrow

You have now turned on the Undo Send feature.  How do you actually use it?

  1. After you have sent your email, click the Drafts folder.  All mail that you send will hang out in the Drafts folder for the amount of time you specified earlier.
  2. In the Drafts folder, select the email you want to stop from sending.  It is probably the top message.
  3. In the upper-right of the email, you will see a progress bar.  Click Undo.

  4. At this point, you can either edit your message and Send it again, or simply get rid of it by clicking Discard.

Have a good weekend everyone!
