How To undo sending a Gmail message

This is a guide if you would like to enable "undo" sending a message in Gmail. There are many times and many reasons who we would like to be able to recall an email after sending it. Maybe the wrong email address has been typed and instead of sending it to Jim your friend you have sent it to Jim your boss. The wrong attachment has been attached to the message. There are numerous reasons why this feature is very vital and many people are now going to be using it. 

How to enable "Undo" in Gmail 

1. Login to Gmail
2. Click on Settings
3. Click on Labs
4. Scroll all the way to the bottom till you find Undo Send

5. Click the enable button and click on "Save" at the bottom of the page

6. Your Done. 

The next time you send an email.Right on top where you get the "Your Message has been sent" link you find a new link that says "Undo". clicking on this link will recall you message and you message will not be sent. The window of time you have is abut 30 seconds. This is still in Gmail Labs so there may be some discrepancies, before it is rolled out as a full fledged function.
