How To ‘Unsend’ A Sent Message On Gmail.

- About a third of the way down the page you’ll see the “Undo Send” section.
- Click the check box to Enable Undo Send.
- Click the drop-box to set the Send cancellation period, meaning the number of seconds you have to prevent the email from being sent. You can choose 5, 10, 20 or 30 seconds.

Gmail’s Undo Send feature works differently in that it actually waits to send your email, giving you a certain amount of time to change your mind and prevent it from being sent. But you have to be quick, as Gmail gives you only a specific number of seconds to halt your email.
