How to Unsend an Email


(USA Today) – Have you ever clicked “Send” on an email and regretted it a fraction of a second later? Whether you were angry and typed something you shouldn’t have, clicked “Reply All” when you wanted “Reply,” or just accidentally clicked the “Send” button before the email was finished, your first instinct is to find and click an “Oops!” button. Unfortunately, there is no such button for email … or is there?

While I can’t tell you how to unsend email you might have sent already, I can give you four options to set up your email so you can undo them in the future. Taking a few minutes now can save you a lot of embarrassment later.

Gmail ‘Undo Send’

Google’s Gmail is an incredibly popular email system thanks to its powerful and customizable inbox. It also has more features on the back end than you can shake a stick at, and it’s adding more all the time.

One feature Gmail has had for years is “Undo Send,” but it was experimental and buried away. Now, it’s front and center, and you just need to enable it.

In your Gmail account, click the gear icon in the upper-right corner and choose “Settings.” On the “General” tab, scroll down and find “Undo Send.” Click the checkbox for “Enable Undo Send” and choose the cancellation period.
