Since the "send cancellation" function newly implemented in Gmail is disabled by default, if you want to use it you need to enable it manually.

To open the setting screen Click the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen and click "Setting".

In the "General" of the setting screen, the item "cancel transmission" has been added.

Click the checkbox on the red frame to enable the send cancel function.

And set the cancellation time between 5 and 30 seconds. The default is 10 seconds.

Finally click on "Save Changes" at the bottom of the screen to use the send cancellation function.

That's why I click "Create" ...

I will try to create a mail. After creating the e-mail, click "Send". So far nothing has changed from Gmail so far.

However, when you activate the cancel cancel function, the message "Sending ... canceled" appears at the top center of Gmail's screen ......

Even after the transmission is completed, this kind of display will be displayed for the time set as "cancel time".

So click "Cancel".

Then the transmission is canceled ......

It returns to the state before sending mail.

The sending cancellation function seems to be structured to send mail when the time set as "cancellation time" elapses after clicking "send". In other words, at the stage where "Message sent" has been displayed, I just reserved to send e-mails, and the sending itself is done after cancellation is impossible.
