    Hi Ole,
     
    Thank you for your question!
     
    Email notifications in Zendesk Support are a result of a trigger. Once the trigger fires and sends the notification via email there is no way to "unsend" it, unfortunately.
     
    As some extra information, I am sharing this article below:
     
    How are Zendesk Support email notifications sent out?
     
    Hope it clarifies your question and you have a nice day,

    I think an "undo" option really should be added to Zendesk. From the support workspace, if you accidentally submit an internal response as a public response, or if you submit a public response but see right away that there's a typo, it'd be great to be able to undo that submission within 10/30/60 seconds.

    I don't think the value in this feature would relate to emails sent via trigger, but it would be extremely helpful in maintaining professionalism and client confidence when it comes to submitting responses from the agent workspace. Who doesn't make typos and mistakes? This feature would allow for quick corrections.

    Also, since this is a standard feature in email apps like Gmail, and in competitors like Freshdesk, it would also make sense to provide Zendesk agents functionality that they likely already expect.

    Auch aus meiner Sicht wäre es gut, wenn es eine Option gäbe, einen E-Mail-Versand wieder rückgängig zu machen. Der Vorschlag mit 30 bis 60 Sekunden Zeitpuffer finde ich gut!

    I agree with Ethan Martin

    There should be a short delay before any triggers are activated. Similar to what is done in online Outlook. You get a delay of 5 seconds to allow you to back out of the send. Making this an option that is configurable would be ideal.

    We really expect there could be a function "undo" added on Zendesk. After messages or attachments have been recalled,this kind of record could be checked by admins and agents in history tab but users can't, in case those info would be maliciously withdrawn by agents.

    What's more, we can not 100% guarentee  that as human-being, agents will not make any mistake when they are assisting customers especially when they are busy assisting with so many customers at the same time, it definetely will be a huge challenge for our agents. During that period of busy time, mistakes occur easily,We have already met such kind of case which had a terrible impact on our company's image due to the absence of this function.

    Agree, this is a standard feature in Outlook.  People make mistakes.  But when private or confidential information is on the line (companies can be fined and taken to court), there MUST be a functionality.

    Dan Borrego or someone from Zendesk, could you please comment if this functionality is on the roadmap? The use case and value should be pretty clear as highlighted in the comments above. Thanks!

    Please add this feature. It is not technically "undoing" the message sending as this is impossible from technical point of view, but providing a few seconds of delay between clicking the "send" button and actually sending the message. This is a standard feature in Gmail and Freshdesk. It is a life-saver.

    Wait, isn't this what we all need, just hidden under an unintuitive name? https://www.zendesk.com/marketplace/apps/support/195694/cancel-ticket-submit/

    Unfortunately, the "Cancel Ticket Submit" app that I shared above is not really that great. I have shared my feedback in a comment on the app page.

    A new "unsend email button" could be a very nice functionality. 

    Also if we can do it only from "back door", directly from google service as a "email recall". 

    Thanks Zendesk and Dan Borrego for thinking on it.
