Experts' Experts: How to undo "Send" in Gmail
Wish you could turn back time?
Well, in a narrow sense you can.
Long story short: "If you make a typo or regret sending a message, you can undo the action by enabling the 'Undo send' lab. This lab will give you the option to take back a message you just sent."

It depends on what effect it has at the receiver's end. In Outlook you get a "Message has been recalled by Xxxx" (or words to that effect) when somebody recalls an email. I think without exception, when one of those messages received everyone I know thinks "Ooh, I wonder what the screw up was!" and opens the original email hoping for a misdirected rant or juicy gossip (what can I say, we're shallow). It only serves to draw attention to the original email, though Jeff's "30 second delay" would certainly negate that issue.

You get 30 seconds max.
