Leave it there... They'll learn. :)

And of course, you don't stop services to run Exmerge.  It uses MAPI and the
store has to be running. 

An event sink that \dev\nulls all recalls would be better.  :)

In my experience, it doesn't even work in an Exchange environment. The 
user gets a message that the message should be recalled, but the 
original is still there, even if it hasn't been read yet. I've heard 
people say that at one time it would auto-delete the message if it 
hadn't been read, but I've never seen that.

It does, provided you read the "recall" message first -- but since Outlook
(by default) displays in reverse chronological order, and most people read
email in the order received, it does little good.

Back when I was involved in Exchange administration, I can't tell you how
many times I had to stop services and run exmerge against the store to clean
out messages that somebody accidently sent to a distribution list.

That .. and all the people that got embarassed due to incorrect use of
"reply-all" ;)
