    Hi @Pesandu Dissanayake

    Welcome to our forum!

    According to official documentation, it is not possible to recall emails outside the organization, which is by design. More information, see: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/recall-or-replace-an-email-message-that-you-sent-35027f88-d655-4554-b4f8-6c0729a723a0.

    To get this feature more quickly, I have found a post in feedback collection website, and you could vote for it. Many features of our current products are designed and upgraded based on customers’ feedback. You can also make suggestions on that website and hope Microsoft will notice this in the future. Thank you for your understanding and support.
