Gmails attachment reminder

Something i just noticed in Gmail is the nifty reminder to attach your file before sending the email.

I don’t think there is anyone out there who has not had the following happen:

You are about to send out an important file (perhaps to your boss or client) and you spend a good while tidying up the body of the email, explaining what the attachment is. Then your press SEND

Then suddenly you realise you forgot to attach the damn file, or even worse you get a reply from the recipient asking for the attachment to be sent! Doh!!!

Well Gmail now scans the body of your email for words such as “attached” and reminds you that you have not attached anything even though you have mentioned it in your email!

How cool is that????

It seems so straight forward and obvious when you think about it.

I just can’t believe it took this long for someone to think of it!

Gmails Attachment Warning

The only thing i dont understand is why other words such as “attachment” are not flagged?? It doesn’t throw this error when “attachment” is in the body of the email.

Any ideas anyone????
