Once you have sent an email, Gmail displays a message with an "Undo" button at the bottom left of the page.
Gmail - undo sending button Click on the button cancels the sending, returning you to editing. The default time for the button to display is 5 seconds. Than means that in 5 seconds the email will be sent and you will not be able to cancel it.
