Email BooBoo? Correct it with the new 'Undo' Feature in GMail

The 'Undo' feature in Gmail is awesome! What does it do? Well read on.

Let us say you typed your mail and hit the 'Send' button marking the wrong person in the mail. Gone is Gone! But now with a grace period of 5 seconds to rectify your BooBoo, it might well be just the right thing to save an Oops!

Google says the
Undo feature will give yourself a grace period of a few seconds to cancel sending, then edit your message before sending again. This feature can't pull back an email that's already gone; it just holds your message for five seconds so you have a chance to hit the panic button. And don't worry – if you close Gmail or your browser crashes in those few seconds, we'll still send your message.

To enable this feature, Open your Gmail > On the Top right Corner click 'Settings' > Click on the 'Labs' tab and find the 'Undo Send' feature. Enable it.
