Undo send Gmail Message undoing sent email


Gmail user facilitated with undo send Gmail message while Composing and sending messages using the web browser. Unlikely this option is not available using a desktop email client such as Outlook. Once you sent a message, then you will need another email to recall your previous one, but the recipient's already got what you posted in the email body. The undoing option was previously Gmail lab as an experiment which adopted as the permanent option for undoing sent mail.

Recall an email option is limited in Gmail:

Gmail gives you an option in Gmail Settings to turn on and then selected the duration in seconds of your choice for "Send cancellation period". The options are to enable and set the length of 5, 10, 20 and 30 seconds. It is recommended to choose the maximum duration as 30 seconds. It would be hard to think and quickly recall the sending message if the duration is only 5 seconds.

How to Enable Undo Send to recall an email:

To enable the undo send option in Gmail click on the gear icon and navigate to Settings.
  1. Click gear icon.
  2. Navigate down and click on Settings
  3. From General Tab scroll down to Undo Send section
  4. Check on Enable radio button
  5. Set the Send cancellation period 5, 10, 20, or 30 Seconds. Choose as your choice the amount of time to un-send the message.
  6. Scroll down and Save Changes

If it not enabled, it would be impossible to callback your sent items.

After you enable Undo Send in Gmail

While composing and sending messages using Gmail in the web browser, once you hit the Send icon, the top progress bar indicating "Sending... Cancel". This action can stay for a second only which can't be canceled by most of the user. But next, you will see "Your message has been sent. Undo View message". This option will stay for the amount of time you selected previously from Settings Undo-Send section in the General tab.

Sending has been undone.

  1. Showing Sending in a process and very short amount of time to cancel
  2. Your message has been sent. Hit the Undo link for undoing
  3. Compose box will appear along the pop up above Sending has been undone

The solution for already sent email:

If the above solution didn't work in a situation, you would like to callback the posted item after few minutes then there is no other option but only to write back to the recipient to ignore your previous sent item. Just like recall option in Outlook.

There is no solution because the message already passed out from your sent items hitting the Google server and reached to the recipient inbox. Just like you sent a letter via post which can't be callback once arrived at the consignee house.
