It is believed that Google is working on a lock icon to activate the mode that will be introduced with the new design of the Gmail. And as we inch closer to the official launch, reports of the new features have begun pouring in abundance.

The Gmail overhaul, apart from a complete redesign, will also pack a handful of modern features you usually find on third-party clients. The design will feature elements of Google's Material design. Yesterday, the redesign leaked early giving us an early look at what's in store for users. These features will be an enormous help to businesses that want more control over how emails are used by recipients. The Verge notes, though, that recipients will still be able to take screenshots or photos of these confidential emails.

"You can configure the expiration date so that your email disappears after 1 week, 1 month, multiple years, etc.", Tech Crunch writes. Among the more intriguing-sounding innovations: a "Confidential Mode" that keeps email protected by not allowing the recipient to forward it, cut and paste from it, print from it, or download it, per TechCrunch-though more than one source points out there's nothing stopping someone from simply taking a picture of the email, either via a computer screenshot or with a camera.

Monday's aerial attack struck an Iranian drone section of Syria's T4 base, which was under exclusive Iranian command, he said. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world.

And you'll be able to put an extra layer of security on particularly sensitive emails - you can require the recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode (sent to their phone), or to log in a second time, before viewing the content.

When exactly will emails self-destruct?

Google is revamping the web version of its popular email service, Gmail. Two businessmen in the United Kingdom didn't like some results that turned up when their names were searched for on Google, so they took the company to the High Court of Justice based on the "right to be forgotten" precedent set by the Court of Justice of the European Union in 2014. And as a recipient, you'll have a clear idea of when these messages will "self-destruct".
