New undo feature for Gmail

It's Friday and I have some things I wanted to blog about, since I haven't blogged much recently, I thought today was a good opportunity to blog about some findings I found interesting.

I use Gmail as a secondary email to Yahoo, but I read on the Gmail blog that there is a new feature for Gmail, the undo send. If you use Microsoft Outlook, then you probably know about recalling a message, well this is basically the same just for Gmail, but you'll only have five seconds to click the "Undo" link after you send an email to undo sending it, or it will be sent.

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.

This feature can't pull back an email that's already gone; it just holds your message for five seconds so you have a chance to hit the panic button. And don't worry – if you close Gmail or your browser crashes in those few seconds, we'll still send your message.
