Don, I second the suggestion to look in their Archive folder.

Cheers

Further research has revealed that you can indeed "unsend" an email using Google Mail.

See how at this link: https://support.google.com/mail/answ...DDesktop&hl=en

What I want to know, is can one restore that email via some other method?

Still trying to find that email. I tried Time Machine, but since I only connect my MacBook Pro once a day for backup it is no where to be found.

Since this email once existed on my hard drive, there must be some way to access it. While Gmail removed if from the server, should it not still exist somewhere on my hard drive? All I know is the name of the person who sent the email and the email address of the department of the corporation that sent it.

There has to be a way!

Contacted Apple iPhone support, they know of no way to retrieve it on my iPhone, even once it was read. It never was opened on my MacBook Pro. The saga continues.

Not even possible once the email has been sent.

That is not right, see post #12 above.

That only applies if the SENDER was using the option with their gmail or maybe Microsoft Outlook account and I believe it must be done within about maybe 60 seconds max I believe after sending. And even then it's not 100% reliable.

Would any of these suggestions work???

Or maybe even this???

If you read the link you will find that it can be undone up to 24 hours later and is controlled by the sender who must set the details and time frames prior to sending the email. I too thought this was a very limited option. Turns out it is not and is not restricted to gmail. There are other programs out there that will allow people to retract emails with ease and with plenty of time from sending the mail. It is something I knew nothing about until I began some research and it is truly scary that folks can do this as the potential for nefarious purposes are many.

This is interesting for a number of reasons. Not the least of which because it turns the accepted 'snail' maxim that the letter belongs to the addressee/recipient not to the sender, on its head.

if the sender can unsend, then, ipso facto, the sender owns the message, which is the exact opposite of accepted practice with 'snail'.


Seems to me, SINC, the most parsimonious solution will be to contact the sender in order to clarify the matter. YMMV!!!
