If you use Gmail and if you would like to avoid sending an email to the incorrect recipients, without the promised attachments, with the wrong subject line, or worse, here’s how:

– Gmail settings offer the option of pausing an email delivery up to 30 seconds, thereby buying you valuable time to stop it from being sent and to make any corrections.  To enable this:

– In Gmail go to ‘Settings’ and click on ‘See All Settings’.

– Under the ‘General’ tab (left-hand side) find ‘Undo Send:’

– Change the Send cancellation period from the default 5 seconds to 10, 20, or 30 seconds.
