Gmail is certainly a great email service that is being powered by Google. No matter how many emails you will receive, no matter what kind of email you will get, no matter how large your email is, you can easily use your Gmail account to send and receive email. This is absolutely free and very easy to use. The most important thing is Gmail can be used in almost all email clients. You can use it in Windows 10 Mail, iOS as well as Android. Windows Phone users can also use Gmail besides Outlook.
Anyway, if you send an email to someone, you can never delete that or undo that after a certain time. That email will be stored in your recipient’s email account forever until or unless he/she deletes that manually. That is good from one side. However, if you have made any mistake or sent any email to someone by mistake, you may face some awkward situations.

It has some drawbacks as well. As this is a Chrome extension, you cannot get its advantage if you use other browser. On the other hand, there is no option to set custom time. You have to choose either 1 hour or 1 day or 1 week.
