So you've sent an email to quite the wrong person.


Or you've forwarded someone's email to someone else in order to bitch about them, and accidentally cc'd in the original sender. Or replied all when you really didn't want to. In short: you've sent something you shouldn't have, and you've realised what you've done about two seconds later.

It's bad.

But it needn't be. Look for the cog in the top right.

Click "Enable". Yes, it's only a short time frame. But at some point, this may just save your life.
