    Google have added a "5 second rule" when sending emails to allow you realise that you accidentally sent that saucy email meant for your girlfriend, to your mum instead.

    The tool is part of the Gmail Labs development, that need to be selected in Gmails options before it can be used. Once the feature is enabled, you get an Undo popup box after sending each email that closes after 5 seconds.

    Full story, including details of other Labs ideas such as Mail Goggles to stop you emailing when you're drunk, can be found here.

    5 seconds is too short!!
    Needs a "drunk mode!" as well. So it will not post anything between the hours of; 7pm Friday to 5am Sunday, unless you click the send button again after at least a 2h wait...
    (Different from the Drunk puzzles thingy they have just now!) :D

    useful feature to correct mistake, but the time 5 seconds is very less.
