Stop Sending Emails You Later Regret

To help users with their impulsiveness, the folks at Google Labs have released Mail Goggles, a new Gmail feature that will give you the extra time needed to think twice before sending a potentially compromising email. It accomplishes its function by asking you a few math questions before your email is sent on its way, making sure you have plenty of time to reconsider your decision.

By default, Mail Goggles is only active late night on the weekend as that is the time you're most likely to need it. Once enabled, you can adjust when it's active in the General settings.

Hopefully Mail Goggles will prevent many of you out there from sending messages you wish you hadn't.
