How to undo a sent email in Gmail



If you make an error in your email, you can undo the sent email by enabling “Undo send.” This will revert back any email you sent.

To enable this option in your Gmail:

  • Click the gear icon in the top right corner in your Gmail.
  • Then select Settings.
  • Scroll down to “Undo Sent” and select Enable.


  • Set the amount of time you need to undo a sent email. (Send cancellation period: 5,10, 20 or 30 seconds)
  • Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.


That’s it! Now you will see an Undo option every time you sent an email to someone.
