It makes sense if the email hasn't been retrieved yet. GS wants SMTP to have a Recall Unread Message feature which it doesn't. So in the meantime, they expect Google (or the postman) to do the retrieval for them. Should this be possible? Sure, for a fee until SMTP (or another protocol) will let users recall their own messages.

FWIW - You can recall internal messages with Outlook/Exchange. I'm sure others do it too.

I prefer my Roku 2/3 to the smart features on my TVs but it is difficult to buy a nicer TV these days without the "Smart" features included. It would be nice is if you could disable the "Smart" part of these TVs. I don't think I have seen that as an option but I guess you could just disable the networking.

You probably think you want an Apple Genius bar and that isn't cheap. It isn't appropriate in a large organization either.

IT will never get the funding they need in order to staff their department to operate as you wish but they will get funds to buy tools like SCCM. SCCM is sold as a enterprise management tool to improve customer service with minimal staff.

Tools like SCCM come with great power and can do great things. Unfortunately, mistakes can and do happen. Sometimes the mistakes go unnoticed. Sometimes the mistakes are painful to everyone.

I don't work with SCCM directly but I'm told something like this happens to everyone eventually. Hopefully you just send something like Adobe Reader to everyone but sometimes it turns out very very bad. I can't believe there isn't a way to make it really really really hard to do something like this.

If it was an honest mistake then hopefully the person learns and moves forward. If it was part of a pattern of bad behavior then hopefully they can get rid of the person.

With all the fancy scientists in the world, why can't they just once build a nuclear balm?
