Cool GMail feature - Undo Send

Most of us, when sending an email message, take advantage of the time it takes for the progress bar to tell us that our email has been sent to actually proof-read our the message.

Of course when we see that glaring typo, there is nothing we can do about it. At best you MIGHT be able to rip out your network cable in time (laptop users operating wireless can try smashing their device instead).

If you use Gmail, you can activate one of their "Lab" features, "Undo Send". With this enabled, you can have up to a 30 second window between hitting SEND and being able to UNDO SEND before Gmail will actually send the email.

It is kind of like Microsoft Outlook's message recall feature, if that feature actually worked.
