Hot off the presses from Google Labs, well okay actually a couple of days late. Here is the next great feature to enhance your gmail account. I am a huge fan of gmail and have had an account since before they were publicly available. They continue to improve and advance the features of the product, making it absolutely essential for me. Plus, it integrates so well with the many other free google products, such as picasa. Here is the latest from google labs:

Sometimes I regret sending a message the morning after. Other times I send a message and then immediately notice a mistake. I forget to attach a file or email the birthday girl that I can't make her surprise party. I can rush to close my browser or unplug the Internet — but Gmail almost always wins that race.
An email to the wrong Larry pushed me over the edge. I could undo just about any other action in Gmail — why couldn’t I undo send? Many people agreed, including Yuzo Fujishima, an engineer in the Tokyo office. My theory (which others shared) was that even just five seconds would be enough time to catch most of those regrettable emails.
And now you can do just that. Turn on Undo Send in Gmail Labs under Settings, and you’ll see a new “Undo” link on every sent mail confirmation. Click “Undo,” and we’ll grab the message before it’s sent and take you right back to compose.
This feature can't pull back an email that's already gone; it just holds your message for five seconds so you have a chance to hit the panic button. And don't worry – if you close Gmail or your browser crashes in those few seconds, we'll still send your message.
I've had Undo Send turned on for a while and it's saved me several times. Let us know if it saves you too.
