There's a lot of chatter and news lately about 'email' brain farts; Sending out emails to unintended recipients happens, but I'm here to help you save yourself from embarrassment and business suicide! Introducing the UNDO SEND feature (or as I call it, the "panic button" for all you Gmail users!

Activating this feature gives you a 10, 20, or even 30 seconds email cancellation buffer!!!

Imagine how many times you wished to have this feature, right?

Here's how to turn it on!

Go into your Gmail account and access your "settings"

Find the LABS tab and scroll down (it's 2-3 towards the bottom) called UNDO SEND. Enable it, the click SAVE CHANGES.

Now Select your GENERAL tab in Settings.

Scroll down and find the UNDO SEND setting. Set the time to your desired buffer zone, then hit SAVE!

Now every time you send an email a little notification will show up asking if you'd like to UNDO your email! LIFE SAVER!
