You just send your mail but you forgot the attachment ? You have sent to the wrong person ? Be aware that it is possible to cancel its shipment and to retrieve it without the recipient noticing.
With Gmail, you can, like Outlook, to cancel sending of a mail and recover it. This reminder email is in any way a postponement of the shipment. You have 30 seconds at the maximum, to retrieve your email, before it is, for good, sent and received.
It goes without saying that the cancellation of the shipment will not work if your internet connection cuts.
Note that if you use the version Labs, the feature Undo send is enabled by default.
