Gmail has introduced a new Labs feature that may spare you the embarrassment of sending a message to the wrong contact. Fittingly named "Got the wrong Bob?" the new Labs item tries to identify when you've accidentally included the wrong person in a group email, and notifies you prior to sending the message.
In a blog post, Google explained that
if you normally email Bob Smith together with Tim and Angela, but happen to add Bob Jones instead, you'll be warned. While the feature only works if you're emailing more than two contacts at once, it can be paired with other embarrassment-saving
Gmail Labs features like Undo Send to prevent email mishaps.
Enabling the new "Got the wrong Bob?" Labs item is a piece of cake. Log in to your Gmail account, click Settings
at the top right of your screen, click on the Labs
section, and toggle Enable
next to the feature (which is located a little over 3/4 down the page). Be sure to check out the other Gmail Labs features while you're there, or take a look at our favorites here
