    I sent a message with Mail that had some grammar errors. Is there a way to recall the message repair the errors and resend? Thanks for any help!

    Nope. Once it's left your mail server, it's gone.

    Unfortunately not. It is not possible to unsend an email.

    That was one good feature about AOL back in the day, if you sent a mail to another AOL address you could recall it.

    The only way to do it nowadays is using outlook and an exchange server however....recall message often doesn't work and many times recipients can still see the message. (At least in 2003 not sure about newer versions).
