Have you ever clicked the “send” button after typing a Gmail and realized you forgot to include something or made a mistake? Maybe addressed the email wrong … or written something that you regret saying?
Well Google Labs has a simple, but limited way, to “unSend” that email IF you enable the Undo Send Lab and use Gmail from the browser. It can give you up to 30 seconds* to “Undo” the send (depending on your settings*). Give it a try.
- Click the gear icon gear in the top right.
- Select Settings.
- Click the Labs tab.
- Find the "Undo Send" lab and select the Enable radio button.
- Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
Select the amount of time you have to undo sending a message by clicking the gear icon, and finding the "Undo Send:" section in the General tab of your Settings.
