Is there a way to invalidate (or pull back) this email and the attachment remotely? Normally no. However, some email services have a short window when you can "recall" mail: gmail - 30 seconds maximum - during which you can cancel sending email(s) (so it's not a true "recall") outlook - you can un-send email in Outlook only if that email ...

In a practical way, no. The situation is analog to regular mail. Once you drop a letter in the mailbox, it is pretty much gone. Now, not discussing the legal aspect, in principle you could remove the letter from the mailbox until the time the truck comes to pick it up. After that, you could somehow stop the truck, and the same with different parts of the ...

Icons in this place show that the message was encrypted and/or digitally signed using S/MIME. The red cross icon means that there's a problem with the certificate used to sign this message (e.g. it was expired, or otherwise cannot be verified). Click on the envelope to see the details.

Check out notmuch-vim. I, like you, love vim and like to use programs with similar bindings but haven't really found anything suitable. However, I'm blown away by notmuch-vim and like it better than any email client I've used in the past. I've used mutt a lot and also short runs with various GUI clients. I like it so much I started improving the ...

To do this without a plugin: Close Thunderbird Backup your profile directory (and most especially prefs.js) Using the built-in config editor (or editing prefs.js directly), find the mail.accountmanager.accounts preference, and change the sequence of the comma-separated account references in it. Find mail.accountmanager.defaultaccount and change it, if ...

Vim is a text editor; it can handle the part of editing emails very well, and it ships with the mail filetype, which provides some syntax highlighting and special settings. There are various ways to integrate Vim with email applications; terminal-based tools like mutt can be configured to use an external editor, and there are add-ons like External Editor ...

I know there is a way to invalidate an attachment sent along with the email, but not sure about the email itself. This, also isn't true. Attachments are just encoded in a way that allows the email system to transfer them, but they are carried within the same message. This would be different if you don't actually attach the file, but instead upload the file ...

For people still looking for an answer in the base mail application, the best solution I could find is running the h$ command inside mail to jump to the bottom of the list. (Source)

I figured out a way to do this. Use the Gmail SMTP server. Create an application specific password. This is essentially the manual way to "send as an alias" with gmail. I don't know why they removed the Alias functionality, but this is how to make it work. I've written a more detailed step-by-step tutorial with screenshots and links here: http://...

First i executed apropos-value ~/Mail/. It threw me many variables, that contain this string in their values. On my Debian i installed package emacs24-el so i could track down these variables in code. I ran describe-variable on the variable nnfolder-directory, which value was ~/Mail/. In went to the code and found out it's initialized like this: (defvoo ...

The Arch Linux Wiki, a great resource in general for all Linux operating systems, explains that msmtp-mta merely creates an alias for sendmail. This means you will have broader support for programs that require a sendmail compatible system. There is an existing question which discusses how to configure the mailing system of cron. However, again, I would ...

You can use add-on Manually sort folders 1.1. EDIT: Now the link is: Manually sort folders 2.0.2 (TB ver 68+).

You can't Because of how email works, this is entirely impossible. Your mail client will deliver the message to your server, which will then pass the message on to another server, etc... until finally the message is passed to the destination server. Even then, the target user's mail client needs to recieve and view the message. Due to this chain, it is ...

Simply put, you cannot. Send a follow-up email requesting that the receiver delete the previous communication as it is private information sent in error. It will be nice if they respond but do not demand a response from this person.

How to pull back an email that has already been sent? After it was sent, probably in no way, but the administrator of the receiving server (who manages the mailbox of the e-mail address of the wrong recipient), could still physically delete the mail from the server before it is accessed. It is a question of time and opportunity. Time. This is obviously ...

For email templates I use a lot, I simply place a shortcut on your desktop linked to the template. All you need to do is go find your template in Windows Explorer, right click on it and choose Sent to > Desktop (create shortcut) As it is stated in the article, here are the paths to the templates locations (unless you saved your template elsewhere); ...

If your email client is set up with IMAP, you can uncheck the "Show in IMAP" button on the Gmail Label Settings Page, and it should stop.

According to a post on Stack Overflow, it seems that it is the Javascript to generate custom font. %7B%7D translates to {} and "cvml returns urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml which is an XML namespace for Vector Markup Language".

The handler that you have listed is for the webcalendar and is irrelevant to getting gmail set as the default mail client. Please follow these steps: Navigate to https://mail.google.com and login if not already logged in. (this is the step all the guides were missing) The double diamond icon should now show in the URL bar. Right click the icon > Choose ...

The workaround is to trick Thunderbird to not pay attention to that new notification. Two steps: 0) First, make sure you're subscribed to "All Mail" if you (like me) thought unsubscribing would solve your problem 1) Create a filter to mark new items in "Sent Mail" as read. Tools -> Message Filters -> select the gmail account -> New apply when: checking ...

If using OS X 10.10 use the following code as the location of the previous recipients file changed. I did some digging and this worked for me (the following is all one line): sqlite3 -csv ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.corerecents.recentsd/Data/Library/Recents/Recents 'select display_name, address from contacts where kind like "email";'>~/Desktop/recent....

If you have Microsoft Access, in the External Data tab at the top you can click Outlook Folder as a source and pull all the data from an Outlook folder (in your case "Inbox") into a linked Access table so it updates every time you look at it. If you're not comfortable with Access then you can click Export to Excel in the same tab at the top.

Gmail has a feature called Email Delegation, which allows you to grant access to your account to other gmail addresses. They won't be able to change any major settings like change your password or change your recovery info but they can go to your inbox and read/reply/delete emails with their account. With this, you can achieve the same purpose. This is ...

you cannot drag the mail shortcut from the startmenu. Instead you need to create a desktop shortcut. You can do this by doing Windows + R to open the RUN menu and then typing shell:AppsFolder to open the apps folder. From there you can search the apps folder for the mail application. Right click on the application and click create shortcut, this will prompt ...

Please check the location document of your address book. (the bottom right have shortcut) If the basic --> internet email address is not your email address. It will probably cause the problem because the program use the location document to recognize "you". If the internet email address is not correct, the program will assure you as one of recipient in ...

Under Linux and Windows, you could use Mozilla Thunderbird with the Enigmail add-on that allows to sign and encrypt messages (and will work the best if you don´t use HTML formated messages). For Android, K-9 works very well. Although I've not used any GPG feature with it, it seems that APG offers a nice integration with K-9.

I found some info about doing this with a macro, and it works in 2013, but I don't have 2010 to test it on. If you don't have macros enabled, you will need to go into the Trust Center and enable all macros, which Outlook advises against doing because malicious code could run. Then you have to add a custom group to the ribbon and add macros to that custom ...

One possible reason is that the sender might simply be unable to reach the recipient's mail server directly. In the early days of email & SMTP, you had more than just Internet – you had Bitnet; UUCPnet/Usenet; Berknet; MILNET; DECnet; etc. all using incompatible protocols. A domain like sri-unix.uucp might not have had an IP address in DNS – only a MX ...

To make this as an answer, I'd suggest to use pine. The mail command really isn't made for interactive use. It's for bare bones, your system is completely hosed, and you're searching for some email from cron. For anything else, use something newer and designed for day to day use, such as pine or mutt.
