    Recall

    Hello everyone!

    We got a message from the U.S. side , pretty informal one, possibly sent to us by mistake.
    Then we got a message running like this:
    "Mr. D would like to recall the message 'XYZ'".

    XYZ is the subject of the message.

    What do you think Mr. D wants?
    Does 'recall' mean 'cancell' the message here?


    Thank you

    Yes, can also mean take back/return... if there is something wrong with a product there's a recall and you take that product back to the place you purchased it. Same word for both situations.
