Sent a nasty email to an Ex?, or sent a email to your boss by accident? Accidentally hit the “reply all” button? Forgot to attach something? Don’t panic, with Gmail’s ‘undo send’ feature you can recall email sent without it ever reaching your recipients’ inbox.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Log into your Gmail and navigate to the icon located on the upper right corner of your screen, then click on the ‘Settings‘ option from the drop down menu that appears.
2.Click on the ‘Labs’ link which is close to the right side of the screen along the top.
3. Scroll all the way down, until you see an option to “Undo Send”. Make sure you enable it.
4. Hit ‘Save Changes‘ at bottom of the screen.
Now, when you send an email, an “Undo” link will appear next to the “Your message has been sent” note at the top of the screen. Hit ‘Undo’ to recall email. Simple.
PS: Gmail gives you 10-second window to make the ‘Undo‘ call. If you think you’re going to need more time, you can adjust the time limit up to 30 seconds within the “Undo Send” options.
