WinDeveloper Message Recall adds many critical features that are not available out-of-the-box. Amongst others it provides a predictable recalling process. Users can rely on the fact that if they immediately realize an error was committed they will be able to successfully recall the email without the recipients ever knowing. This is true whether the email was addressed to local or foreign recipients.
WinDeveloper has taken a completely different approach. The solution is based on the fact that very often senders realize that an error was committed as soon as they hit the Send button. This is when WinDeveloper provides the opportunity for senders to abort email delivery.

WinDeveloper Message Recall is 100% compatible with the Outlook message recalling functionality. There is nothing new in this sense. Users have to open the email to be recalled from the Sent Items folder and select 'Recall Message' as they do when WinDeveloper is not in use. For more details on this check Recall Emails from Outlook 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003.
WinDeveloper also adds the OWA Recall extension. MS Exchange does not provide the ability to recall emails from the Outlook Web Access/App interface. WinDeveloper fills this gap, allowing users to recall emails straight from their browser.
You need to install the included WinDeveloper OWA Recall extension on each Client Access Server. Once you do that, a new 'Recall Messages' button will appear at the OWA left side-bar. Click on that to open the OWA Recall extension and submit recall requests.
Note: The OWA Recall extension is only visible if running OWA Premium (see details below). If running the OWA Light interface, WinDeveloper OWA Recall can be accessed by entering the URL:
Exchange provides two interfaces for OWA, Premium and Light. Which of the two interfaces is returned depends on the browser type you are running. Exchange 2007 only provides OWA Premium when running Internet Explorer 6 or later. Exchange 2010 provides OWA Premium in case of IE7+, Chrome, FireFox and Safari (Mac only).
No, this trick won't work. WinDeveloper Message Recall processes emails before reaching the recipient mailboxes. Recall requests are fulfilled without the recipient knowing of the original email.
Yes the process is equally applicable to all emails originating from within the organization. It makes no difference whether the email is addressed to a local recipient or a recipient outside the organization.
What happens next is up to you. WinDeveloper may be configured to delete the request at the server. In this manner the recipients will never see the recall attempt. Otherwise you can choose to deliver the recall request to the recipients, falling back to traditional recalling.
Yes. If the email is recalled successfully the recipients won't see any of the original or recall request. If the email cannot be recalled, you can configure WinDeveloper to delete the request at the server so that recipients won't know of the recall attempt.
No the product will never access user mailboxes. All processing is done at the message transport. WinDeveloper won't fulfil recall requests for emails that have already been delivered.
WinDeveloper is a server-side application and no new client software is required. WinDeveloper is 100% compatible with the Outlook recalling functionality. Users can continue recalling emails from Outlook as they do today. The only difference is that the recall success rate will be dramatically improved.
WinDeveloper also adds the OWA Recall extension, an add-on that is installed at the Exchange Client Access Server. With this extension the ability to recall messages becomes available to all users directly from their internet browser.
This is possible as from WinDeveloper Message Recall v1.2. This release introduced support for configuration Overrides.
Using Overrides you can specify different recall handling settings for different email categories. In this manner it is easy to specify a long recall time window for emails addressed to foreign recipients and a shorter time window for internal emails.
You can also create overrides for other user categories. For example some users might be handling more confidential information than others. You can create an Override specifically for these users to have a longer recall time window.
For examples on how to configure Overrides check this article:
WinDeveloper provides the ability to record all recall requests. Logs include all the key information such as the subject, sender, recipient list, and whether or not the recall was successful.
In addition you may also archive to disk all successfully recalled emails. Email senders might want to block recipients from seeing their email. However if the organization policy dictates that deleted emails are to be archived at the server, WinDeveloper will also satisfy that requirement.
Yes you can specify the set of users whose emails will be processed by WinDeveloper Message Recall. Otherwise you can use an exclusion list where you specify the users who won't be using the product.

WinDeveloper Message Recall has to be installed on each Exchange 2007/2010 Hub Transport server. So you need to order one license for each of these servers. We do not perform any sort of user counting. Whether Exchange is servicing tens or thousands of mailboxes it makes no difference. The only relevant fact is the number of Hub Transport servers.
The ordering system uses SSL to encrypt your details so as to safeguard sensitive data such as the credit card number. For the greatest security we do not handle any credit cards directly. Instead all credit card processing is handled by ShareIt - Digital River GmbH, a specialized payment handler.
