Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

I am Cory.


I am sorry you have sent an email by mistake that you want to recall.


Unfortunately there is not a way to recall the email you have just sent.


Sending an email is kind of like mailing a first class letter at the post office. There is not a way to stop the process once you mail it.


However, Gmail does have a feature that you can use for future messages.


It is called Undo Send.


If you login your account and click to go to the labs section.

Scroll down to Undo Send and choose Enable then click on Save Changes.

Next time you send an email you will see a meesage at the top to undo/cancel.

I believe it lasts about 20-30 seconds after you send the message.


If you have any questions please reply and i will be happy to assist you further.


Have a delightful day!
