    Protonmail has this:

    "Catch an embarrassing typo after you hit send? Our new Undo Send
    feature is now in beta in the web app and is enabled by default for
    all users, including Free users. Undo Send gives you a chance to
    correct your message after hitting send. It's set to a 10-second
    delay by default, but you can also choose 5 or 20 seconds."

    Nice, this feature on Gmail has saved me a couple of times.

    I totally forgot about the one in Gmail. Undo Send was set to 5
    sec. I pushed it to 30 sec.

    Most of the time I use a local email program. When I "send" the
    message is first just parked in the outbox. That way, I have
    plenty of time to review or reconsider ultimately sending
    something.

    Gmail has had that for a while.

    Ah... but Gmail doesn't *really* do an undo-send. ;) It most
    likely saves every message for their data collection activity.

    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.

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

    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.

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