macOS: How To Undo Send In Apple Mail
Apple has updated its stock Mail app with various long-delayed features with the release of macOS Ventura. It includes the ability to recover emails sent in error. This article explains how to use the new Undo Send Email feature.
Note the Undo Send feature in case you use Apple’s Mail app for your email post and you have 13.0 or later installed on your Mac.
In conclusion, you are capable of unsending the email now in case because for some reason you regret sending an email right after that you have pressed send. Then it won’t arrive at its destination, to the person you sent it to. But then again, it’s only possible if you act quickly and unsend it as soon as possible.
Next time you send an email, an Undo Send option will briefly appear at the bottom of the sidebar (if you don’t have the sidebar showing, select View -> Show Sidebar in the menu bar).
To Unsend An Email In Apple Mail:
By default, you have a total of 10 seconds to click the unsend button before the unsend option disappears if you sent the email by mistake. After 10 seconds, you won’t be able to unsend the message you sent in error. Yet still, the interval can also be set to 20 or 30 seconds or turned off entirely for immediate sending. Here’s how you can do it:
- With the Mail app open, select Mail -> Settings… from the menu bar.
- Select the Composing tab in the settings window.
- Under “Sending:” click the dropdown menu next to “Undo send delay:” and select from the following options: Off, 10 Seconds, 20 Seconds, and 30 Seconds.
- Close the Settings window to save your changes.
The Undo send delay option that you selected will come into effect immediately.
