Gmail Undo Send : A True Face Saver

It happens to the best email sender - forgetting to attach a file or change the title, typing MS. instead of MR. or emailing a friend that you can't make it to his surprise party.

Oddly enough, the epiphany of a bad email usually happens a few seconds after you hit the send button. And in between hiding your face in shame and thinking about the best thing to do to correct the mistake, you wonder: "I could undo just about any other action in Gmail — why couldn’t I undo send?"

Well, thankfully, Gmail has just done something about that --

An email to the wrong Larry (above) pushed me over the edge. I could undo just about any other action in Gmail — why couldn’t I undo send? Many people agreed, including Yuzo Fujishima, an engineer in the Tokyo office. My theory (which others shared) was that even just five seconds would be enough time to catch most of those regrettable emails.

And now you can do just that. Turn on Undo Send in Gmail Labs under Settings, and you’ll see a new “Undo” link on every sent mail confirmation. Click “Undo,” and we’ll grab the message before it’s sent and take you right back to compose.
