Undo Email is a Gmail Labs feature, which means it is not activated by default, and you need to enable the feature for it to work. The feature is so useful, that I believe it should be activated by default for all Gmail users. Its the most useful email feature ever, activate undo email now. I can recall how many times I needed to use this feature.

In Gmail > Settings > Labs > Undo Email > Enable > Save Changes

Try Undo Send and you will see this is the best feature you must enable today.
