Apps: Retrieve that angry email

Yankback is an email recovery system that lets you save yourself embarrassment if you suffer one of those "Oh No!" moments where you realize you've just inadvertently sent or forwarded an email to the wrong person. It works equally well to add a forgotten attachment, without having to send a second "oops" email. The tool doesn't let you recall an email once it's been delivered to a recipient's desktop mailbox, but it's the next best thing. It gives you a few extra minutes -- you decide how long -- to get it back. The service will be offered on a subscription basis for $24.97 a year, with a 15-day free trial. If you have more than one email account, you can get additional Yankback subs for $9.95 annually. Yankback works with PCs, Macs and Linux machines, and it's easy to setup on most email clients, such as Outlook or Eudora. Unfortunately, it won't work with webmail services, like Hotmail or AOL, but it will handle GMail accounts that are setup for POP3.
