Techie Diaries #4: Back After A Short Hiatus

How To Unsend E-mails:

At one point or another, we have all sent emails that we regret. It may have been the typo that ruined your shot at that amazing internship, an angry message that you were composing only to send it unintentionally or the ever- dreaded reply all error.

The worst I ever saw was a friend who once sent his bank details to the entire school. (You know who you are).

With today’s innovative mindset, it was only a matter of time before people discovered a way around this problem.

Enter Pluto Mail a free service that allows users to edit sent emails and even un-send messages. This gem comes courtesy of David Gobaud and Lindsay Lin, two Harvard Law School students.

From its website, Pluto allows senders to view when emails are opened. It also helps users reduce their online footprint, avoid email disasters, and have fun with time-limited emails. Pluto requires no downloads or plugins for either the sender or recipients.

It includes other features such as allowing one to:

  • unsend emails
  • view when the recipient opens the email
  • edit emails before they are opened
  • set emails to autoexpire


The service is currently being tested by 600 users.
