With Mailbutler’s Undo Send, whenever you hit send on an email, a small box will pop up with the details of the message and a timer. Here, you can either send your email immediately, or recall it if you notice a mistake in the message you’ve been writing. If you hit recall, your email will reappear, and voila! You can make any necessary changes and resend your message, ensuring you always look professional.

After you send an email with Undo Send, the email remains for a set amount of time in your outbox. Here you’ll have an overview of all the messages which are able to be recalled, meaning you never lose track of any of your sent emails. If you spot a mistake in a message, you can undo the sending, or, if you’re happy with your message, choose to send it immediately.

Keep every email under control with Undo Send. If you send several emails one after another, you’ll see an Undo Send pop-up for each individual email. This will contain details of your email and your recipient’s name and email address, and give you the opportunity to recall specific emails. This way you have an overview of all your emails and can quickly decide which can be sent immediately and which need to be recalled.

Set your own custom delay times

Want a longer time delay before your message is sent? No problem! Mailbutler lets you set a time delay of however long you want, from a one-second delay up to as many minutes as you like.
