Have you ever been in a situation where you hit the Send button prematurely, but you weren’t quite ready to send out the email, maybe because it was full of grammatical errors and typos? No need to worry about that anymore because Microsoft is currently testing out a new feature dubbed Undo Send that will help you retrieve such kinds of emails before the recipient gets to see them. If you’ve been using Outlook on the web, or perhaps Gmail, you’re already familiar with Undo Send, but now it’s coming to the Mac.
To access this feature, you need to navigate through Outlook > Preferences > Composing then set up the delay time to either 5, 10, 15, or 20 seconds under the Composing dialogue. Once you have this set up you will start receiving a prompt at the bottom of them each time you want to send an email with the Undo Send button.
The feature, Undo Send, is currently available for Office Insiders running Beta Channel version 16.62 (Build 22050200) or later. The feature is limited to Microsoft 365 and Outlook.com accounts. As usual, if you do not have this feature already, you are likely to get it in the near future. Microsoft continues to make enhancements on it using the feedback they get for the users that already have access with the aim of making the experience more seamless. It is not yet clear when the feature will reach general availability.
