    Gmail has had that for a while.

    Ah... but Gmail doesn't *really* do an undo-send. ;)

    How so? I imagine Gmail's undo-send probably works the same way, by delaying the actual send so you have time to decide to undo the send.

    It most
    likely saves every message for their data collection activity.

    I suppose that's true, but I don't see what that has to do with undo-send.

    What I meant was that gmail probably keeps a record of the
    message whether you send it or not.

    ok.. techinically un-send appears to work from the sender's pov.
    My original point was poorly communicated.
