There are 3 things in this world that once it’s out, we can’t take it back. The first is an arrow that has left the bow, the second is a missed chance, and the third is spoken words. Well, that’s not all, there is one more thing: an email that has been sent. At least that’s what I used to believe.
Based on my personal experience, there were times in my life – maybe in yours too – when I stared at my computer hoping that I can undo the email I just sent. And I am so grateful I don’t face it again.
Before I continue, I would like to make a deal.
I want you to promise that if at the end of this article you feel that this article is very helpful, I want you to share it with your friends who you think will benefit from reading this article. Sounds good, right? It’s a win-win deal. You get the benefit, your friends will get the benefit, and I also get the benefit (NoLimit will give me a restaurant voucher if this post gets the most visitor this month. So, would you help me?)
By continue reading this article, i assume that you agree to our deal 😉
I don’t think there are many people who actually know that Gmail has this awesome feature that has saved my life so many times (really, once upon a time I almost sent the wrong email to a client). This feature will allow you to undo and edit the email that you just sent. You can’t undo your old mail though, because this feature only gives you maximum 30 seconds timespan to undo your mail after you click the send button before it will be delivered to your recipients and you can’t take it back.
Here is how to do it:
- Open your Gmail account. Click the setting icon on the right side and choose setting
- Under the general tab, look for undo send option. Click the enable undo send optino and set the timespan according to your need.
- Don’t forget to click the save button at the bottom of the page.
- Enjoy your life
Well, it’s easy, right? And now, I can guarantee that there will be times in the future when the future of you will say thanks to you for spending your 30 seconds doing this thing. I think that’s all from me. Thank you for reading this article and sharing it (if you find it useful, of course, just like our deal 😉 ).
