I know in Outlook you can retrieve a sent e-mail, and replace it with a new e-mail. Is there any way to do that in Mail?

Mac OS X (10.5.3)

    Not that I'm aware of.

    Oh, and welcome to the Forum!

    You can't actually "pull back" a sent email, but if you look in Mail's "Sent" folder, you should see your sent mail there, from which you can copy the text, subject line, and recipients, paste into a new mail message, edit, and resend.

    Hope this helps,

    Even in Outlook the ability to retrieve a sent email is dependent on the Exchange server rules. If you are not using Exchange or if there is no sent mail holding rule, then once an email is sent, it is gone!

    Once a message is sent you can't retrieve it. That's the way internet mail works (and old-fashioned mail too, for that matter).

    You can easily send a message again, with alterations, with Mail's Send Again feature.

    Hello HBQ:

    Welcome to Apple discussions.

    In addition to the information you have received, let me add this. You can only retrieve a sent E-mail in Outlook if the mail is:

    1. Internal. In other words, not sent outside your organization.
    2. Unread.
