Give me five seconds

by Volker Weber

This feature can't pull back an email that's already gone; it just holds your message for five seconds so you have a chance to hit the panic button.

Great idea. Hold a message for five seconds after I hit "send" and give me the chance to cancel it. That would catch most of my mistakes.

Is there a thunderbird extension for this as well? :)

really? 5 secs catches up most of your mistakes? brilliant.

in Lotus Notes, we call that scheduled replication for send/receive mail :-)

in Outlook we call that a send filter - I hold all outgoing mails for 2 minutes... catches a few more mistakes ;-)

Isn't using gmail one of the biggest mistakes in this case?

Please explain.

Regarding this, please have a look at yesterday's Geek & Poke comic.
