Have you ever sent an email to somebody only to be sorry for having sent the message that it consisted of? If so, you may be thinking about a new Chrome extension called Dmail, which can save the day by offering your Gmail-based e-mails the capability to self-destruct.

Dmail, which presently supports Gmail only, can be found in a month after Google presented a new ‘‘ Undo Send out ‘ function in Gmail which permitted users to withdraw a sent out email within 30 seconds of hitting the Send out button. This extension allows you to send an email to any individual, with the power to revoke the recipient’s access to it at anytime. You can also set a self-destruct timer such as an hour, a day, or a week that rejects access to the email after the specified time period has actually passed.

After setting up the Dmail extension, you’ll see a new switch enhanced the bottom of a brand-new e-mail that you are composing. You can simply turn that switch to turn on or disable Dmail whenever you want.

Much to everyone’s pleasure, it doesn’t matter whether the recipient has the extension installed or not. While recipients with the extension currently set up can read the e-mail directly from Gmail until access to it is rejected by the sender, it works a bit differently for those who do not have actually Dmail installed. Such users will get an email which checks out “This safe message was sent making use of Dmail. To view this message, merely click the button below”, after which a new tab will be opened showing the email.


After access to the e-mail is revoked, the recipient will certainly view a message that states “This message has actually been destroyed and is not available”. This implies that the e-mail will not be eliminated from the recipient’s inbox, it’s just the access to the message which will be denied.
