If you regret sending a message, you can easily recall it by enabling delayed sending of all emails by up to any duration you want. This setting gives you the option to take back a message you are still sending.
How to undo a sent email
With Undo Send enabled, you have multiple ways of stopping a message from being sent:
- Immediately after sending, a message will pop-up from your menu bar, giving you the option to cancel the sending. Click Undo Send to re-edit the email before resending.
- (If you have disabled the popover) immediately after sending, click on your menu bar icon. An Undo Send message will pop-up, giving you the option to stop the email from being sent.
- Immediately after you have sent an email, go to your Outbox and select the outgoing email. Select Undo Send from the green banner shown on top of your message.
- Immediately after you have sent an email, go to your Outbox, right-click on the email you would like to unsend and select Undo Send.
