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 https://mail.google.com/mail/?shva=1#settings/labs 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!
