  • Setting an expiry date for emails is possible and takes only a few minutes. Gmail has a secret mode that allows you to choose an expiration date. Gmail users can also choose to prevent the receiver from viewing the email before it expires.
  • The expiring emails will not be lost by the sender and will be found in the 'Sent' folder. If an individual does not want the expiring email to exist, the sender will have to manually delete it. Gmail allows you to send confidential messages and attachments from your phone or computer. The recipient will not be able to forward, copy, print, or download the email once the expiry date has been set.
