Gmail Blog - Stop Sending Mail You Later Regret

If you find yourself "drunk emailing" or otherwise sending emails that given your state of mind you should not, Google's new feature could be your saving grace. When you enable the function, Google will force you to do a few simple math problems before you can sent the email. You can adjust the time it is active to avoid being forced to answer these questions in the middle of the day. Though, if you feel you need it on all the time you can set that as well.


"When you enable Mail Goggles, it will check that you're really sure you want to send that late night Friday email. And what better way to check than by making you solve a few simple math problems after you click send to verify you're in the right state of mind?"
