Undo Send

I always realize I've made typos after hitting the "Send" button and when my e-mail is displayed as sent.

This optional feature exists in Gmail and adds a 5/10/20/30-second delay after clicking "Send", which leaves you enough time to hit "Cancel" if you spot any mistakes in the e-mail (or even if you change your mind).

    In one case someone may be extremely upset and about to send a message that will not help themselves or the recipient. In other email services, there is an option to undo sending emails with the sender still be given the chance to change their mind.
