Another not-very-revolutionary feature: Gmail does “undo send”


Gmail’s undo send feature is being talked up all over the web right now.  Why.  It’s revolutionary of course.  WRONG.

Outlook has done this for YEARS, all that’s happening is that a delay is introduced.  To do this in Outlook 2010:

  • Go to Options > Advanced
  • Scroll down to Send and receive and remove the tick from Send immediately when connected

You can leave it there, or configure the time between send and receives by clickingthe Send/Receive button.  Now stuff will sit in your Outbox (from where you can stop it sending by editing it) until the next send and receive which you can obviously start.
