You'll also be able to send emails in "Confidential Mode", which will block the recipient from forwarding, copying and pasting, downloading, or printing the email.

"Working on an email service is hard as you have to be compatible with all sorts of email providers and email clients".

Frankfurt's Kovac To Succeed Heynckes As Bayern Coach
Los Blancos haven't been great in La Liga this campaign but there's just something about Europe that brings out the best in them. Frankfurt can still win a title this season as Kovac's men clash with Schalke in the German Cup semi finals on Wednesday.

The yet-to-be introduced feature works quite much like expiring emails in "ProtonMail" in which the email becomes unreadable after some time. However, that doesn't seem to stop Google, as the company is now going beyond the POP3/IMAP/SMTP protocols.

"You can configure the expiration date so that your email disappears after 1 week, 1 month, multiple years, etc.", Tech Crunch writes.

After Colin Kaepernick refuses to abandon protest, Seahawks postpone workout
Kaepernick has a pending lawsuit alleging collusion by the league office, owners and teams to keep him out of the NFL . While the anthem protests eventually died down last season, during the owner's meeting the topic was brought back up.

TechCrunch states that the feature isn't ready yet, as their source arrived at a non-existent page after clicking on the "Learn more" option to open Google's help articles. It further states that the recipient won't be able to forward, download or copy the email's contents, and attachments will be disabled. Recipients will then receive an e-mail that requires them to click a link and input their Google credentials to view the e-mail. Even then, like TechCrunch reported, the Confidential Mode is available to a handful of users right now. Of course, these features won't restrict the receiver's ability to store the email's content via taking a screenshot or capture a photo from another device. Also, the new redesigned Gmail might be just around the corner, presently the redesigned Gmail has been seen on the Early Adopters Program. When it expires, it is automatically deleted from the inbox and the sender's inbox. While Google delisted one of NT1's six requested links, it refused to delist any of the others. When a user sends an email using the confidential mode, the mail will look like any other email. Google has not mentioned end-to-end encryption anywhere, which means the company is most likely to stick with non-encrypted emails.
