    Well have you actually sent it? If so unless you're using MS Exchange then you ar epretty much screwed, even if you do use MS Exchange you'd have to recall it and hope nobody downloaded and read it in the meantime.

    If however you haven't actually sent it and it is sitting in your outbox then disconnect from the net, open Entourage/Mail/whatever and then delete the message.

    Just re-read your post... Sounds like you emailed something from home to work already and in that case you're up the creek without a paddle I'm afraid, does your company monitor it's email? Basically it depends on how big your company is, if it is a big corporation it has probably been caught by a filter already.

    I always hate it when I leave my computer to use the bathroom and my roommate/girlfriend/buddy/kids get onto my e-mail and send nasty messages to try and get me in trouble.

    That's what happened, right? ;)

    Could see that one a mile away... Ah, how many times have I got people in trouble for doing that to them... :cool:

    Or, alternately, you don't even need access to people's machines depending on the circumstances - depending how the SMTP server is setup, if there's an anonymous way to gain access then someone can spoof e-mails addresses as much as they like and get lots of people into real trouble! Not that I've ever done that of course... :cool:

    Talk to someone in the company's IT department and see if they can take it off of the server for you.
