And even Exchange only does "message recall" if nobody has read the
message. That was certainly true in older versions of MS Exchange 2003
but it may have changed recently.

The only way you really have to do this is to process the logs, identify
the message ID and then manually (well, programatically) delete them
from all your users' inboxes, but this can be in breach of some local
legislation regarding data protection and unauthorised access.
