Not possible really. Gmail lets you undo within 30 seconds of sending the mail but not after that, you need to enable this in the labs feature in gmail settings. In Outlook, under “Sent Items”, “Actions” menu, I think one can click “Recall This Message” and click “Delete Unread Copies of this Message.” But that depends on whether the recipient has already read the message or not.

I dont think it can be done with OE. The only reason it can be done with Outlook is that its usually tied to the exchange mail server where the actual recalling happens (and then usually only within the same company's network). Email that goes through different ISPs cant be recalled.

Why dont you just apologize and ask the recipient to ignore the message?

Uhm it is like this I have sent an email via a Uncle of mine and I gave very important information about him and to the person I send this can rowen his life. So it doesn't matter if I apologize.
