Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves sending an email that destroys itself after the recipient reads it. This message will self-destruct.

That’s not just a line from Mission Impossible. A Chrome extension called mxHero Toolbox actually makes self-destructing emails a possibility. By enabling a feature before sending an email, you’ll ensure that the message alerts you when it’s read and then deletes itself after five minutes.

Though that’s cool on it’s own, it isn’t the only thing you can do with mxHero Toolbox. Want to see who clinks the links you post in your emails? Try it out. Want to write an email now, but send it later? mxHero can help. It even helps you hide recipients’ addresses from each other and alerts you if your message isn’t responded to.

Give this extension a try. If you like it, share it with your friends on Facebook, or better yet, email them a self-destructing link.
