How do I recall an email from Hotmail on my iPhone?

Hotmail account users have some advantages and benefits, such as the ability to search mailboxes, increased features in security, and the ability to recall or even replace an email message. When you recall an email from your iPhone, the email you sent is retrieved from the recipients' mailboxes who have not opened it yet.

You can also substitute a replacement message. When a message is successfully recalled, the recipients can no longer see it in their inbox. 

If you and your recipients are both on Hotmail and in the same organization, you have a feature where you can recall or replace an email message that you sent.

An important note worth mentioning here is that If your account is a MAPI or POP account, a recall will not work in such cases.
