    If you received an email, the contents can be edited if you forward it and make the edits before sending.

    Most email systems will not allow a sender to edit an email after it's been sent. Some specialized systems might have this feature.

    It's becoming more common, for example in Gmail, to have an "undo send" option.

    Some mail servers such as Microsoft Exchange support a "recall" feature that will allow the sender to delete the email and send a new version of it if needed.
