How to undo already sent Mails on GMAIL

Sending emails has become an essential part of our life. This is a crucial service that almost everyone makes use of. No doubt sending email has eased our life. You can send any file include audio, video, any PDF, text file to anyone and it just takes few seconds to deliver the message from originator to the requested recipient. People use email to communicate with friends, relatives and mostly for business communication.
Gmail is Google’s email service which is more than 10 years old now, released in 2004. Google provides 15 GB of combined storage for storing your emails, photos and documents. Gmail automatically organizes related messages into a conventional thread. You can add people to your contact list, filter messages by keywords or email ids, change the theme of your Gmail account, etc. There are a lot of customization options provided.
Did you ever send an email to someone and later regret for sending it? Did you ever want to edit a sent email and correct your mistakes? Or undo sent email altogether? I have seen many people who have sent an angry email to their boss, colleagues, emotional email to their ex-partner and then regret for doing it just a few minutes later. Most of the people have accidentally sent an email that was not quiet finished or wasn’t addressed to the right person.

Do you think there any way to get rid of such stupid mistakes? Even in many cases your personal email can be sent to the entire recipient list in cases of conversation instead of a particular sender. Sometimes people mistakenly hit Send instead of Trash. You might have encounter such situation once in your lifetime. That’s the moment when we need the undo sent email function more than oxygen.
These are mistakes that happen unintentionally once in a while. Sending an email to wrong person may bring you a situation of embarrassment or even worst. If you have ever regretted after sending an email to someone or send an important or personal email to wrong email address then there is a way to correct your mistakes.
Fortunately Gmail provides an option of UNDO to undo sent email that you have sent to wrong email address or to person whom you never wanted to send such mail. With this feature you are given a cancellation period of about a few seconds which you select previously to undo the sent email. If you click the undo button of that sent email then the email is not sent.

By default this option is enabled for 5 seconds but you can extend this to the maximum 30 seconds because I think 5 seconds is very short interval for us to decide and act. The available cancellation periods include 5, 10, 20 and 30 seconds. I will recommend you to set this time as 30 seconds so that you can get the maximum time to undo any email.
Step#5. Click on Save Changes
Once you are done with the changes, scroll down the current page to the bottom and click on Save Changes.
Bottom Line
Now you are all set. Next time when you send an email accidentally to wrong email address then before regretting, choose the UNDO message.
