Are you worried about a sent email that went to the wrong ID? If you had sent an email to the wrong person on Gmail then don’t worry we are here to give you some tips which can easily help you to recall your sent email.

Nowadays email is an important medium for sending a document within few seconds.

Every email account has a unique id or address. When we send an email to a person that time we have to input the email id but sometimes these email ids create complicated situations.

Why? Because if you insert a single wrong letter in email address then the email goes to a wrong person. It is very dangerous but it is even more dangerous if that email is very confidential, even if you later block this email-id, the emails will not get removed from the unknown receiver's inbox.

If you are going through the same situation then don’t panic just follow the mentioned steps which will help you to set settings to retrieve emails in Gmail if you have sent to a wrong id.

Step-by-Step Instruction with Screenshots


At first, click on the gear icon which you can find on the right side. After clicking on this, you will find settings, just click on it.

But, there is more you need to know...

What is Minimum and Maximum Time Frame for Retrieving Sent Emails?

Once you open the settings tab, you will see that the default value is 10 secs. But you can increase that value to maximum of 30 seconds. Not more than that.

So, the minimum time frame is 10 seconds and maximum is 30 seconds.

What Changes will Happen in your Gmail Account for Sent Emails?

You have set 30 seconds to confirm undo for the sent email. Right?

**That is why, the email will be processed to be sent to that recipient after 30 seconds.


If you are thinking that, ''once you hit the send button then the email will be sent instantly and will be visible on the recipient's inbox and next, when you click UNDO, it will get vanished from the recipient's inbox''.

No, That is completely wrong thinking...

Even it is not possible for Gmail to delete a sent email from receiver's inbox when the recipient's email id is in another server (like: gmail to outlook). So, this method actually gives you time to stop a sent email from being delivered.

So, at last, if you have faced such issue then just click on the 'Undo' option and you will notice that you came to the previous step. Before that, complete the settings in your gmail account right now.

Note: Remember one thing if you choose the 30 seconds as a time frame of cancellation then you will get just 30 seconds to undo your last sent email.
